The Ontario County Republican Committee has announced that Ed Cox, the New York State Republican Chairman, will be the marquee guest for their sixth annual Constitution Day Dinner.


The event is set for Friday, Sept. 15, at Club 86 in Geneva. Cox, previously the state Republican chair from 2009-2019, reclaimed the position after his successor, Nick Langworthy, was elected to Congress.

Cox is married to Tricia Nixon Cox, the daughter of former President Nixon. The dinner, an annual tradition, serves as a platform for significant leaders, candidates, and officeholders to discuss successes at various government levels, remarked Trisha Turner, Ontario County Republican Committee Chairwoman.

The Constitution Day Dinner is in commemoration of the U.S. Constitution’s adoption and recognizes new U.S. citizens. Officially marked on Sept. 17, the observance honors the 1787 day when the Constitution was signed in Philadelphia. Attendees can anticipate a lineup of notable Republican figures, including Congresswoman Claudia Tenney and State Senators Pam Helming and Patrick Gallivan. The evening will also celebrate the “Ontario County Republican of the Year,” Annie Chwiecko. Tickets and sponsorship details are available on the Ontario County Republican Committee’s website.
