John Wannenburgh is an independent candidate and this is his first time standing for the House of Keys.
Originally from South Africa, he moved to the Island in 1994 and has spent the past 25 years working in the events, entertainment and hospitality sectors.
For 18 of those years he's lived in North Douglas, and he's the owner of the Sporting & Dining Club, which brings celebrities to the Island.
He has three children, and two mini schnauzers, a Jack Russell and a cat.
In his spare time, he enjoys travelling, classic cars, rugby and F1.
John says: "The Island warmly embraced me as soon as I arrived here. It's because of this that I was able to build a thriving business and now, it's time for me to give something back. I know I can bring a fresh perspective to the problems the Island faces."
