GREECE, N.Y. -- One of the largest towns in New York State is about to elect a leader. Retired police officer Jim Leary is looking to unseat incumbent Greece Town Supervisor and Monroe County GOP chair Bill Reilich, who has held the office since 2014. Leary switched his party affiliation from Republican to Democrat for the race. “I’m challenging the old established way," Leary said.
ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- A new resource to combat substance abuse is now officially open to the public. The Open Access Clinic on University Avenue in Rochester offers immediate assessments and referrals for treatment to people suffering from addiction. Anyone who comes to the clinic has an opportunity to get an open bed at a rehab facility. State officials say the innovative program is one example of how New York is ahead of the curve.
ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- For Joyce Vereecke of Rochester, home improvements are life improvements. “It’s been wonderful. I’m getting windows, I had a furnace put in, I had a water heater,” said Vereecke. “I mean, this program is just wonderful.”It’s a weatherization program that helps low-income homeowners with free home energy improvements. Vereecke says the program saved her from leaving her Dickinson Street home after flooding damage this past spring.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
