Smith announces candidacy for Place 5, Brady City Council

Brady resident W.B. (Dub) Smith has authorized the Brady Standard-Herald to announce his candidacy for Place 5 on the Brady City Council. He filed his candidacy to run for City Council on Wednesday, March 21, the last day to file as a candidate in the May 5 election. Smith is a Brady resident of 25 years and the owner of the local antique and collectibles establishment, Cactus Corral. His wife, Ann (McMurray) Smith, is originally from Brady. They relocated here in 1976. “In the past several months our government has shown they do not want input from those of us who elected them,” said Smith. “They now require you to ask their permission, days in advance, to speak at a council meeting. “If they do not like what you propose to say, they will simply refuse to allow you a place on the agenda. They want to run our town for their own personal agenda and for the benefit of the ‘select few,’ without interference from those who elected them. “They think they can insult the people with their pre-planned illegal November walkout without any accountability. “I believe that we need to have a government that is dedicated to serving all the people, not just the select few. We need a government that is conducted in council chambers in an open meeting. We need a government that obeys the law. “I believe the citizens of Brady agree with me and will support my candidacy. I want to see that the best interest of all are well served.”
