The chairman of the New York State Republican Party will be the special guest at next week’s Ontario County Republican Party’s Constitution Day Dinner.
Ed Cox served as state Republican Chair from 2009 to 2019 and was re-elected chair again last year after Nick Langworthy was elected to Congress last November. A corporate and finance lawyer, Cox is married to Tricia Nixon Cox, daughter of President Nixon and Pat Nixon.
“The Constitution Day Dinner is an annual event to meet and hear from prominent leaders, candidates and office holders and to celebrate success on the local, state and national levels,” said Trisha Turner, Ontario County Republican Committee Chairwoman.
Constitution Day is an American federal observance that recognizes the adoption of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. It is officially observed on Sept. 17, the day in 1787 that delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the document in Philadelphia.
Tickets for the event must be pre-purchased and are available until the event is sold out. A special VIP Reception with Cox and others will take place from 5:30 to 6 p.m. and tickets are $99, which includes dinner. The dinner will get under way with a social hour at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7 p.m. Tickets for the dinner are $55 per person, $100 for couples or $375 for tables of eight and can be reserved online
