Ryan A. Costello (born September 7, 1976) is an American lawyer and politician from the state of Pennsylvania. From 2011 until 2015, he served on the Chester County Board of Commissioners, and as chairman from 2013 to 2015. A Republican, Costello is the representative for Pennsylvania's 6th congressional district, having been elected in the 2014 elections to the United States House of Representatives.
Costello served on the Board of Supervisors for East Vincent Township in Chester County, Pennsylvania, for six years, serving as chairman for the last four. He was elected the Chester County recorder of deeds in 2008. He was elected to the Chester County Board of Commissioners in 2011. His fellow commissioners elected him as chairman of the commission in 2013, and reappointed in 2014.
When Jim Gerlach, the Republican incumbent in Pennsylvania's 6th congressional district in the United States House of Representatives, announced that he would not run for reelection in 2014, Costello chose to run for the Republican Party nomination. He faced no primary opposition.
Ryan Costello and his wife and son live in West Chester, Pennsylvania.
