A Conversation With New Baltimore City Councilman, Eric Costello


Although City Offices are closed today, one person likely to be working anyway is Eric Costello.  He’s just completed his first week as the city councilman representing Baltimore’s 11th District,  which includes Mount Vernon, Druid Heights, Poppleton and Federal Hill.

There’s been a lot of news coverage of the process that produced Costello’s appointment, after former 11th District Councilman Bill Cole left the seat to head the Baltimore Development Corporation. 
Eric Costello joins Sheilah for his first sit-down interview as councilman to discuss the process that led to his appointment, his first week and his immediate plans for the district.

During this interview, Sheilah mentioned a Baltimore Brew article written by Mark Reutter. Here is that article about committee assignments in the 11th District. 

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
