    Hi,
    To be honest, I don't think either sentence is correct. The image, as a concept, can't be tough and conceited. You need to link the image to another noun or pronoun. I'm trying to think of a way I would say this...
    Perhaps:
    The image of the mayor is one of him being tough and conceited
    or
    The image of the mayor is one of toughness and conceit
