Candidates finalised for the 2012 election

By johnboy - 27 September 2012 43

candidates

Sadly no late dark horse entries when the nominees for the election were announced a bit after noon in the Theo Notaras function room on London Circuit.

The candidates you’ll note were sitting in left v. right array, Philip Pocock furthest to the right of all.


There were signs out on Civic Square inviting the public to come see.

Zed’s NSW registered Falcon Wagon had towed his signage to a nearby locale:

zed instead


phillip green

Around 5 past noon they kicked off.


So here’s the complete list of nominees:


Interesting points to my eye are:

    — Brindabell independent Calvin Pearce lists his employment as “Student”

    — Marion Le is only running candidates out in Belconnen

    — Chic Henry’s down as a “Sponsorship Consultant”

    — Long term Democrat Darren Churchill is running as an independent out in Belco too.

    — Norm Gingell self describes as “Aspiring MLA”, it would be sad if that’s the limit of his ambitions.

    — The Bullet Trainers have a Goldsmith running in Molonglo in Shelley Dickerson

    — The Liberal Democrats also have a Student in Molonglo in Trisha Jha

    — Phillip Pocock in Molonglo is still calling himself a Psychologist.


UPDATE 27/09/12 15:45: ElectionsACT now has some more statistics.

Also ACT Election 2012 has a picture of your correspondent lurking behind Philip Pocock.

What’s Your opinion?

If I don’t poll more than Phillip Pocock, I’m going to be very disappointed in myself. I’m also terrified by anyone who actually hires his services as a consulting psychologist.

It’s good to know Happy Phil will be providing a reverse gold standard for candidates to aspire to!

The Zed trailer fascinates me.

Where did they find a carpark for it?

What is inside, Zorro with his sword, ready to pounce?

I think they were headed to the loading zone off ainslie avenue.

What I notice is that a pretty large number (in the order of 50%) of candidates don’t actually live in the area they wish to represent.

Not, this isn’t the biggest thing in a place like the ACT, with only three electorates, and a mix of socio-economic groups, services, etc in each – BUT, I would love to hear from some of the candidates as to why they are not running in the area they live?

Surely there is no need to publish addresses. If they give them to the Electoral Commission then that is sufficient. There are enough odd people out there. My address is easy enough to find, but I wouldn’t want it published.

Eirlys 2:17 pm 27 Sep 12

If you check the AHPRA website Philip Pocock is a registered psychologist, so he isn’t calling himself one he is one….

What a depressing sight.

Awesome, go the Bullet Train!

Has anyone seen their TV ad?

Actually JB, unless my eyes deceive me he’s listed as a “pyschologist”, and thus may have given himself a loophole should anyone call him on it. “Pish -cologist” sounds more accurate too, given his backstory. {/pedant}

“– Phillip Pocock in Molonglo is still calling himself a Psychologist.”

I’d say that the first six letters of that title are about right.
