Costello, Fred_red tieDr. Fred Costello was born and raised in Orlando, FL. After college and serving as a Captain in the U.S. Air Force, Fred moved to Ormond Beach in 1977 where he still practices Comprehensive and Cosmetic Dentistry. Fred and his wife Linda have been married for 42 years and have three children and six grandchildren.

Fred considers it an honor to have served as Mayor of Ormond Beach from 2002-2010, and has continued to serve as a Representative in the Florida State legislature.

Fred believes that Florida is in great shape but Washington is broken. He has decided now is the time to “Stand Up for America,” and has become a candidate for U.S. Congress, District 6. Fred will fight for America’s Judeo-Christian values, enhanced national security based on peace through strength, and limited federal government through restoration of states’ rights resulting in a balanced federal budget.
