Ann Costantino has been a Baltimore County resident for over twenty years. A graduate of Towson University, Ann earned a bachelor's degree in Mass Communications after first studying communications and journalism in Arizona and Texas. While a student at Towson, Ann worked as Assistant to the Executive Director of the (former) Advertising Association of Baltimore (AAB), where she managed their membership and organized monthly and annual membership events, including the association's local and regional American Advertising “ADDY” Awards shows, recognizing “creativity in advertising” in Baltimore and New York.
In Texas, Ann interned with the Austin Chronicle, learning the old school ways of cropping and editing, developing and sizing photographs, and was known to shamelessly pester the “real” reporters on how to write book and concert reviews.
A long way from where she started, Ann is originally from Oahu, Hawaii – a place where she learned the value of the aloha spirit.
Ann is politically independent.
For the first time since the passage of a 2012 law prohibiting campaign contributions by those with casino ties, the State Board of Elections said Monday it has referred a case to Maryland’s State Prosecutor.
