Mike Currie To Step Down... don't think so...

I'm sure the current member from Georgetown - St. Peters is as surprised as I am at this recent development... most potential party leaders need to put forward the perception of being able to win a safe seat before any delegates would take them seriously... and I wouldn't want to be the guy trying to wrestle this one away from Mr. Currie without his co-operation as I think Mike has some unfinished business in the House... maybe Mr. Llewelleyn knows something the rest of us don't as I can't even imagine how he would expect to make a serious run at the Tory leadership from Georgetown without some "deal" done with Mr. Currie to step down.... and I don't see that anytime soon.... I wonder why the media didn't ask Mr. Llewelleyn the obvious question of where he was expecting to run....

The former mayor of Georgetown is making a bid to lead the Progressive Conservative Party of P.E.I.
Peter Llewelleyn says he's received a lot of encouragement to run for the top Tory job at the party's leadership convention next fall and that he has a lot to offer the party.
"I've been a volunteer all my life, and I've been involved in business and trying to make the areas where I live a little better … and it's tough going trying to push these balls uphill," said Llewellyn.
"I think I bring a lot to it, and I think … I'd like to try kicking some of these balls downhill and get some things done. I think it's just time, and I believe that the Island is ready for, maybe, a politician like myself."
Llewellyn said he would make an excellent contrast to Premier Robert Ghiz.
