Mayor Yaniv Aronson has devoted his life to education and community service. Yaniv is public school teacher and Professor at the Montgomery County Community College. He holds a Bachelor of Arts from Penn State University, a Master of Sciences from Saint Joseph’s University, and a Master of Fine Arts from Boston University.

His vision for Conshohocken includes a strong focus on public safety, including speed enforcement along Fayette and enhanced safety along the Schuylkill River Trail. His goal is to make the Borough more pedestrian-friendly and to encourage more community service opportunities. Yaniv also wants to promote Conshohocken as a destination for visitors by focusing on our long-standing traditions as well as bringing in new events such as Dining Under the Stars, First Fridays, and a Conshohocken Arts Festival. Yaniv plans to hold public office hours at the Conshohocken Library, times and dates to be announced.
