Charles Lucas has become the third person of the main political parties to put his name into the hat to run for Bristol Mayor.
The Clifton councillor was selected by the Conservatives in an open primary election, beating GP surgery manager Steve Smith.
Members of the public, of any political affiliation, were invited to register for the event and cast their vote, while the shortlist was decided by the local Bristol and South Gloucester Conservative party.
He now joins Marvin Rees, selected by Labour, and Kay Barnard, for the Liberal Democrats, and two other independents - John Langley and Laurence Duncan - who will run against George Ferguson when Bristolians go to the polls in May 2016.
