Public school teacher, Montgomery County Community College Professor, and local civic leader Yaniv Aronson earned the Democratic Nomination for Mayor of Conshohocken Borough on Tuesday.
“I’m running because the safety of our community, whether on Fayette Street or in our neighborhoods, is my top priority. I’m running because as Mayor, I can be an active and energetic presence in our borough and an advocate for our small businesses,” said Aronson.
New to politics, Aronson would bring years of leadership, education, and community service experience to Borough Council. As a public school teacher for the School District of Philadelphia, he built a Film and Video program from the ground up where students from all backgrounds are trained in industry-standard technology and are certified in professional production software.
“I come to work every day knowing that I am making a difference. There’s nothing like watching one of my student’s films and knowing that they now have these cutting-edge, real-world skills.”
As Chair of the Conshohocken-Plymouth-Whitemarsh Rotary Club, a local non-profit service organization, Aronson provides tools, resources and support to the residents of the greater Conshohocken area. Under his leadership, the Club has participated in food drives for Colonial Neighborhood Council, including a flash food drive during the winter holiday season that generated more than 600 pounds of food, a clean-up on the Schuylkill River Trail, extensive renovation of the Conshohocken Dog Park, a clothing drive for Cradles to Crayons, and service events at Habitat for Humanity’s Restore.
“We live in a wonderful community full of active, hardworking individuals. I am fortunate to have met many Conshohocken residents through my volunteer work and it would be an honor to further serve the borough as Mayor,” said Aronson.
Mackenzie Breinlinger, a Conshohocken resident who works in the borough, said she was drawn to Aronson’s campaign because of its uplifting message and ideas for energetic and active community involvement. “It has been great to see such a positive campaign. This is the kind of message I am excited to support,” said Breinlinger.
Anita Barton, Conshohocken Council Member for Ward 4, is excited about the type of campaign that Aronson has been running. “Yaniv is exactly the type of Mayor that Conshohocken needs: active, energetic, and willing to listen. The future of our borough benefits from that type of positive leadership.”
