From 1978 to 1980, he was the deputy mayor of New York for economic policy and development under Mayor Edward I. Koch. Her mother is the director of fund-raising for the Dalton School, the private school in New York. The bride's stepfather is a senior partner at Chadbourne & Parke, the law firm in New York. Her stepmother is a former chairwoman of the board of Safe Horizon, a nonprofit program in New York that supports victims of violence.

The bridegroom is a senior vice president for strategy and analytics at HNW, a marketing consulting firm for financial service companies in New York. He graduated from Georgetown.

Then read the "RPCVs for Kerry" statement of support and statements by Dr. Robert Pastor, Ambassador Parker Borg, and Paul Oostburg Sanz made at the "RPCVs for Kerry" Press Conference.
