There's a new candidate on the ticket for Greece Town Supervisor.

Monroe County Democratic Chair Joe Morelle announced that Dick Beebe will be the Democratic candidate for the position on Saturday.

Beebe has represented the Town of Greece in the Monroe County legislature. He's also a former firefighter.

Beebe talked Saturday about the importance of restoring the town's image as a place where people are proud to live, work and raise a family.

"I want to be the leader for Greece to present an optimistic vision for our future that includes safe streets, good jobs, vibrant neighborhoods and efficient use of our tax dollars. I will be that leader for the town of Greece,” said Beebe.

Beebe will run against Republican candidate Bill Reilich, who announced his candidacy in March. Reilich is a current state assemblyman and says he will resign if elected town supervisor.

The current town supervisor is John Auberger. He has served in that position since 1998 and has reached his term limit.
