He served as Mayor of Fall River in 1880, was reelected the following year, but resigned soon after assuming the position. Greene was appointed postmaster of Fall River on March 22, 1881, and served until March 30, 1885. He again served as Mayor 1886 and 1895-1897. He served as general superintendent of State prisons 1888-1898, was reappointed postmaster of Fall River and served from March 9, to July 1, 1898, when he resigned to run for Congress.
      He was elected as a Republican to the Fifty-fifth Congress to fill the vacancy caused by the death of John Simpkins. He was reelected to the Fifty-sixth and to the twelve succeeding Congresses and served from May 31, 1898, until his death in Fall River on September 22, 1924. He served as chairman of the Committee on Expenditures in the Department of the Navy for the Fifty-eighth Congress, and the Committee on Merchant Marine and Fisheries (Sixtieth, Sixty-first, and Sixty-sixth through Sixty-eighth Congresses). His interment was in Oak Grove Cemetery.
