ALBANY, NY… NYGOP Chair Ed Cox today released the following statement on the passing of Ed Koch, former New York City Councilman, Member of Congress and New York City Mayor:

“Ed Koch personified New York City: he was animated; he wasn’t afraid to use his trademark humor and wit to resolve a problem; he was fair and balanced in his approach to government and politics, crossing the aisle to endorse Republicans when he felt it was best for the city or country.

“Ed Koch was a New York City icon, and a reminder that even a hatcheck boy from the Bronx can grow up to become Mayor. On behalf of the officers and staff of the New York Republican State Committee, Tricia and I offer our deepest sympathies to the Koch family.”
