He also served as the city’s utility board chairman, zoning administrator, and city representative on the County Economic Development Authority in Charles Town, according to the release.
Shaw said what most stood out to him about Cosentini was his experiences.
“Just his background and the whole overall picture just really stood out for us,” Shaw said. “We think he’d be a great fit for Sykesville.”
According to Shaw, they were looking for someone with small-town local government experience.
“Joe having been the manager for several years in West Virginia, in Charles Town, he’s served in a number of positions which was very interesting,” Shaw said. “He’s been the city clerk, the assistant manager, so when you’re in small town government, a lot of times you gotta wear a lot of hats. For him to understand that was really interesting.”
