Another St. John's city councillor is eyeing provincial politics.

Rookie councillor Jonathan Galgay says he is keeping his options open in St. John's South. 

"Never say never. I've had a number of calls and a number of interested parties who've had some discussions," said Galgay, who represents Ward 2.

"I haven't made a definitive decision yet, but that area in particular is of interest," he said of the riding.

St. John's South is currently represented by Tom Osborne, who was elected as a Progressive Conservative in the last provincial election, but then left the PC caucus and eventually joined the Liberals.

Galgay said if he were to run it would be as a PC.

Galgay joins the ranks of municipal politicians to recently test the waters in the provincial scene.

Last week Ward 1 councillor Danny Breen said he is considering running in the district of Virginia Waters after it was vacated by former premier Kathy Dunderdale.
