How do I remove the spacing before the first line of text in each bullet?

\usepackage{palatino}
\usepackage{lastpage}

\pagestyle{fancy}
\fancyhf{} % clear all header and footer fields
\fancyfoot{}
\renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0pt}
\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0pt}


\cfoot{{\fontfamily{ppl}\selectfont\footnotesize{Page \thepage \hspace{1pt} of \pageref{LastPage}}}}

\urlstyle{same}

\raggedbottom
\raggedright
\setlength{\tabcolsep}{0in}

% Sections formatting
\titleformat{\section}{
  \vspace{-4pt}\scshape\raggedright\large
}{}{0em}{}[\color{blue}\titlerule \vspace{-5pt}]

%-------------------------
% Custom commands
\newcommand{\resumeItem}[2]{
  \item\small{
    \textbf{#1}{ #2 \vspace{-2pt}}
  }
}

    \begin{tabular*}{0.97\textwidth}{l@{\extracolsep{\fill}}r}
      \textbf{#1} & #2 \\
      \textit{\small#3} & \textit{\small #4} \\
    \end{tabular*}\vspace{-5pt}
}

\newcommand{\resumeSubItem}[2]{\resumeItem{#1}{#2}\vspace{-4pt}}

\renewcommand{\labelitemii}{$\circ$}

    Please provide a full example. Additionally is all that code really necessary for the problem you have?

Your code is very complex. For the problem in question, I simply defined a custom SubHeadingListenvironment, based on itemize with the relevant parameters.

Unrelated: hyperref should be loaded as the last package, with very few exceptions (most notably cleveref). Load xcolor rather then color. The usenames option is obsolete, as it has been the default for quite a few years. It is unnecessary to load palatino for the footer since it is loaded for the whole document.
