The Thompson Local News


A candidate has withdrawn his name from the upcoming election in the wake of his previous online activity.

 

29-year-old Ryan Brady was one of four people who submitted papers ahead of the October 24th election, but says he is withdrawing from the mayoral race after comments he made online almost a decade ago came to light.

 

Brady posted to his personal Facebook page earlier this afternoon, saying that he hates to withdraw, but that he is doing what he has been asked by his wife and others.

 

He added that he “just wanted to do great things” for his community, and that “people don’t want these issues worked on, or repaired”.

 

Brady came under fire over the weekend for comments he made on a white supremacist website in 2009, and were posted to a popular Thompson-centric Facebook group.

 

In an interview with the Thompson Citizen, Brady said that he was trolling when he posted the comments, but admitted that what he said was both wrong and disgusting. He added that what he said does not reflect who he is as a person today.

 

According to the City of Thompson’s Senior Election Official, Dave Turpie, Brady’s name will still remain on the ballot.
