First Conshohocken Candidate Signs Transparency Pledge

Joe Ferrigno, a Republican running to represent Ward 1 on Conshohocken’s Borough Council, is the first candidate in Conshohocken to sign’s transparency pledge.

The pledge offers 10 items (some easy, some hard) that provide for a more open and transparent local government and school board. Some of the boards already do some of the things listed, others do very few.

For example, the Colonial School District publishes videos of meetings quickly and in a way that is easy to use. The Borough of Conshohocken publishes videos in a way that is not user-friendly. For example, you can’t embed the videos (meaning we can’t add them to at a certain point in the video to allow readers to watch a portion of a meeting when writing about a topic that was discussed).

Ferrigno is running for the second time. In 2015 he fell short against incumbent Karen Tutino (D) by 41 votes.
