The Maldon and Witham Conservative Associations have announced their candidates for the Heybridge East and Tollesbury by-elections for Maldon District Council taking place on Thursday, 6 May.
A spokesperson for the associations said: "As Conservatives we promise to promote the economy, protect the environment, efficiency and services.
"We believe in the provision of good quality services for the best value for money, operating in an open and transparent way, keeping council tax as low as possible and getting the maximum value for every penny of council taxpayers’ money.
"We believe Maldon District Council needs to be back under Conservative control, as it is the only way to guarantee that your district will become an increasingly prosperous, safer, healthier, greener place for all residents to live, work and enjoy.
"The forthcoming elections don't just decide who continues to run the local services we all care about - it will also be about how we recover and build back better.

The Witham Conservative Association statement on Debbie:
"Debbie has lived in Tollesbury for the past 18 years and for much of that time as a single parent juggling full-time work and bringing up her young children. For 20 years now, Debbie
has worked with local recruitment firm, JobServe, based in Tiptree and enjoys making a positive difference to people's lives. Now that her children are older, Debbie wants to make a positive difference to her community and as a strong listener, if elected will always support the needs of Tollesbury residents, local businesses and schools. One of Debbie’s favourite things to do is is to walk around Tollesbury’s sea wall and to enjoy the salt marsh coast - Debbie is determined to do
everything possible to protect the local natural landscape and its amazing wildlife."
