Greece, N.Y. – Monroe County Republican Chairman and State Assemblyman Bill Reilich is running for Greece Town Supervisor.
Surrounded by a crowd of supporters, he made the announcement at a press conference Friday morning.
Reilich is running to replace long-time supervisor John Auberger who cannot run this year because of term limits.
In a statement Friday, Monroe County Democratic Party Chairman Joseph Morelle said, "The people of Greece want, need and expect leadership that is as good as they are, and under Republican control they haven't had it. We intend to make this a vigorous campaign on their behalf. For far too long Greece town government has been linked with scandal and corruption. We believe Greece residents and taxpayers deserve much better than that. It's time for new leadership and a new direction. That's what Democrats will be fighting for in Greece in 2013."
Democrats have not yet named a candidate for Greece Town Supervisor; however four names are being discussed, according to party sources: Dave Garretson, Rita Garretson, Dan Maloney, and Dick Beebee.
