Tim Glover is an independent candidate and this is his first time standing in a General Election.
For the past 24 years he's worked as a journalist at Manx Radio, spending the past three years as News Editor.
He's resigned from his position to contest a seat in the House of Keys.
In his spare time he enjoys walking, golf, gardening, reading and puzzles and has a Manx cat called Lara.
Tim says: "Many candidates will produce a long list of promises. If elected, these can only be kept by winning over a majority of Tynwald members. My only promise is to represent you locally and nationally with passion, honesty, openness and understanding."
