It’s a ques­tion that Bay Roberts Mayor Glenn Lit­tle­john is asked al­most daily: will you run for the Pro­gres­sive Con­ser­va­tives in the 2011 fall pro­vin­cial elec­tion? And each time, he re­fuses to make any com­mit­ments, say­ing a de­ci­sion will come “ in time.” With Port de Grave MHA Roland But­ler, a Lib­eral, al­ready in­di­cat­ing he will re­tire at the end of his cur­rent term, the po­lit­i­cal land­scape in the district is guar­an­teed to change. The ques­tion is whether Lit­tle­john, who is a pro­vin­cial govern­ment em­ployee, will be in the mix. Hav­ing been ac­claimed as mayor in the last two mu­nic­i­pal elec­tions, and los­ing to But­ler by just un­der 300 votes in the 2007 pro­vin­cial elec­tion, it’s a safe bet that Lit­tle­john is strongly con­sid­er­ing an­other shot at a seat in the House of Assem­bly. The next pro­vin­cial elec­tion is sched­uled for Oct. 11, 2011.
