Leo Cussons is standing as a member of the IOM Green Party.
He was born in Glen Maye and was raised on the Island, working on the farms when he was younger before studying business at the Isle of Man College and Law at Lancaster University.
He's set up several businesses over the years, including an environmentally-friendly cleaning business.
He's also worked in web design and is currently the proprietor of Ken Quine's hardware shop in Port Erin.
In his spare time he enjoys reading the Financial Times, the arts and gardening.
Leo says: "I believe that we have got to look for a new way in Isle of Man politics. Green politics is not about left or right but about a fair, just and sustainable future for all of us. Voting Green is common sense politics which in turn will create unity, harmony and success in our Community. For far too long politicians have looked at the short term for their own careers. As part of the representation process, I have been canvassing since last September to understand why none of the major issues related to Glenfaba and Peel have been resolved."
We asked each candidate to choose three priorities from the following issues or add their own:
Climate change, heritage, tourism, public transport, affordable housing, roads, mental health, education, falling birth rate, encouraging students to return to the Island.
Leo says: "They are all important and will have my full attention."
