The candidate list has been announced for a by-election in Epping Forest district later this month.
Four people will contest the Epping Hemnall seat on September 25.
The by-election follows the death of Conversative councillor and former mayor, Ken Avey, in June.
His son Nigel Avey is the Conservative candidate.
The other candidates are Kim Adams, for the Liberal Democrats, Andrew Smith for UKIP and Anna Widdup for the Green Party.
