The deputy leader of Redditch Borough Council faces deselection by the Conservative Party following complaints about his behaviour.
A formal complaint was made against David Bush over claims he was verbally aggressive towards the authority's chief executive at a meeting earlier this month.
The dispute has since been resolved and Mr Bush says they have a good working relationship, but BBC Hereford and Worcester has been told other complaints about his conduct were made to the local Conservative Association and involve a longer period.
Mr Bush is appealing the decision to deselect him and says he has an impeccable record after eight years of being a councillor.
If he fails, he won't be able to stand for the Tories in May's elections.
