Seton Hill is sad to see our councilman Bill Cole leave the 11th district, but we are very excited that he will be the new President of the Baltimore Development Corporation.  Below are a number of news clippings about this appointment:

What’s next for the 11th district council member?  The city council president is creating a committee to nominate a finalist for Cole’s seat, who then needs to be approved by the Mayor.  “I am looking for someone who will be independent and vote the conscience of the district, and not mine or not the mayor’s,” Young said.

We’ll keep you updated as we learn about developments!

We’re inviting all to join in and submit ideas for the background of the message board.  It can be Seton Hill themed, Baltimore themed, or specific to St. Mary’s park.  Use your creativity!

Your design should cover a 2 feet by 4 feet area.
