Our Cobra driving Mayor
Jim Costello announced Thursday that he will step down after nearly two years as Pacific Grove’s mayor to focus on his battle with bone cancer.
“It has been my pleasure to serve the people of Pacific Grove for over 11 years, but as I leave office I know the city is in good hands,” said Costello in a written statement.
Costello will also retire from his duties as a teacher at Pacific Grove Middle School, where he teaches English, history and keyboarding.
P.G. was lucky to have a teacher like Costello, and a mayor with a sense of humor.
