Ex-US Consul General marries
Former US Consul General to Bermuda Robert Farmer last week married his partner of 13 years in a ceremony in Massachusetts.
Mr Farmer, 75, was appointed the Consul General post in 1994 and served for four-and-a-half years before resigning to help Al Gore's presidential campaign.
He was also a key figure in the Democratic Party, serving as national treasurer for the presidential campaigns of John Glenn, Michael Dukakis, Bill Clinton and John Kerry, raising more than $800 million in funds.
He and his husband, 44-year-old Thomas Winston, were married last Tuesday in a ceremony at the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston.
Among the more than 100 guests were Governor Michael Dukakis and Hall of Fame sportscaster Lesley Visser, along with friends and family.
