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.

Just married: Robert Farmer, former US Consul General to Bermuda, is pictured with his new husband Thomas Winston.
