John Kerry, Groomsman

by Pamela Leavey

Yesterday was a big day for one member of John Kerry’s Boston staff — Setti Warren, the deputy state director for Senator John Kerry’s Boston office. Warren was married yesterday to Elizabeth Tasker Plummer, a daughter of Janet M. Plummer of Andover, N.H., and C. Randall Plummer of Washington, at Saltwater Farm in Tenants Harbor, Me.

The couple met during Mr. Kerry’s 2004 presidential campaign, when she was working on the senator’s advance team and Mr. Warren was his trip director. Mr. Kerry was a groomsman at the wedding.

Congratulations to Setti Warren and his bride, known as Tassy. I had the pleasure of meeting Setti many times during the ’04 campaign. Rumor has it that the wedding was attended by members of Kerry’s Washington and Boston staff.

  1. Congratulations Setti!

    Looks like Kerry finally played well in a southern state too.

    Good article despite some snark.


  2. Interesting how the individuals who have grudges against JK can’t see the changes that are taking place now – in the south as much as other parts of the country.

    While others see something else:

    “… Kathy Hensley, chairwoman of the Lexington County Democratic Party…said she has not seen anything like the reception Kerry received in her 50 years around politics. “I was pleasantly surprised by the whole thing.”


    “Some 400 people jammed into the Woodmen of the World hall in West Columbia to hear Kerry. An estimated 250 were turned away, organizers said.”

    West Columbia had an estimated 7/05 population of just under 13,500. 650 people showing up for Kerry’s townhall meeting is close to 5%. Granted a small town doesn’t offer many chances to meet ex and potential future presidential candidates. The numbers statewide still defied the predictions:

    “Skeptics said the Massachusetts Democrat would be lucky to draw a dozen or so people.”

    Time will enlighten.
