Greece, N.Y. - A Greece Town Board member announces she is stepping down. Councilwoman Shannon O'Keefe Pero says that she feels that work was limiting her ability to represent the residents of Greece. "My day job as a law clerk for a family court judge really limits what i can do politically and it became very difficult to balance the two"

The Greece Town Board will appoint a new town board representative to serve out the remainder of her term. She will step down officially on May 20.
