BCPR - Eric Costello

Eric Costello ¿¿The president of the Federal Hill Neighborhood Association was nominated to fill the City Council seat vacated by Bill Cole, who accepted a position as head of the Baltimore Development Corporation. Almost immediately, the nomination, up for consideration by the full council on Monday, was criticized for the way City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young pushed Costello, his favored candidate, through the process. For Costello, known to favor the interests of Federal Hill bar owners (see opposite page), perhaps the shenanigans are a perfect introduction to council membership.
