David Doe, the man behind the Australian political party that hopes to run a candidate against Attorney General Michael Atkinson, has resigned from his full-time job in a bid to focus all his efforts on derailing the incumbent anti-gamer.
In a message on his website, Doe wrote that it was time for him to put his money where his mouth is and that, thanks to a “wonderfully understanding and supportive wife, and some good savings strategies,” he was able to resign from his position as Quality Assurance Manager at a Melbourne videogame studio.
The quality of my work in both spheres was beginning to suffer and I want to make sure I excel at one of these endeavours for the next few months at least.
Doe made clear that any donations made to the Gamers4Croydon party would not “in any way shape or form… be used as a form of income.”
I want to make it clear that I’m taking a huge and personal financial risk doing this, but if the March 20 election rolled by and I thought that I could have done substantially more if only I’d had more time, I’d regret it as an opportunity lost forever.
Here’s to working hard on something you love.
