(Harrisburg) -- Gov.-elect Tom Wolf is requiring members of his transition team to sign a pledge that they will obey a code of ethical conduct.

The Democrat released a copy of the agreement today.

Signers of the agreement must disclose to the transition team any potential or actual conflict of interest and promise that they will report any such conflicts that crop up while they are on the transition team.

They also promise not to use their position for personal gain, not to use state employees or state funds for purposes unrelated to the transition and not to disclose information about the transition team to a third party without permission.

Wolf says his incoming chief of staff, Katie McGinty, was the first person to sign the agreement.
