Gamers4Croydon, the political party squarely aimed at taking down South Australian Attorney General Michael Atkinson, has announced its candidates.
The organization’s Croydon candidate, who will take on Atkinson directly, is Kat Nicholson, who will be running for House of Assembly notes GameSpot. Nicholson is described as having a “lifelong love of both gaming and politics.” She is currently working towards a Masters degree in Journalism at the University of South Australia and also previously served as an intern at an Adelaide animation studio.
She also “strongly believes that parents – not the government – can and should be trusted to raise their children with adequate supervision, judgement and discipline.”
Nicholson will need at least 13,000 votes to usurp Atkinson in Croydon.
Additionally, Chris Prior, also the President of Gamers4Croydon, will serve as the group’s candidate for Legislative Council. A “self-taught software engineer,” Prior “believes strongly in adult civil liberties, self-determination, and transparency and accountability in government.”
Additional candidates will “be announced in the future.”
