BOSTON (AP) _ Paul Costello, a former spokesman for Ohio Gov. Richard Celeste, has been named as press secretary to Kitty Dukakis, wife of probable Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis.

Costello on July 5 will succeed Andrew Savitz, who was promoted to the campaign’s issues and communications staff, campaign manager Susan Estrich said Friday in a statement.
