Cape00ad is youngeststate delegate to Democratic National Convention By Jen Ellingsworth While a student at Cape Hen- lopen High School, Cecily Cutbill was vice president of her senior class, a member of the Vikings' varsity field hockey team, a peer counselor, and vice president of the Thespians club. She was vot- ed Miss Spirit at homecoming, and Class Clown. Now, at age 22, the momentum of her high school years has spilled over into her collegiate life. A senior at the University of Delaware, Cutbill was recently elected to the Democratic Nation- al Convention, making her the youngest state delegate. Cutbill said attending the Chicago convention is a dream come true. "It was like going to Disney World when I was eight," she said. "It's beyond words to try to explain it. Just seeing it on TV is so different. Actually being there gives you a picture of what it's like to be an American." The state of Delaware is allotted 21 spots for delegates. Since most of those spots are occupied by po- litical heavyweights, Cutbill said she feels for- tunate to have received the honor. Although she is unsure what her fu- ture career will entail, she said poli- tics will play CUTBILL a strong role. "I've been very, very active in politics," said Cutbill. "I'm not really sure when it started. My family is very political, and that probably got me interested." She has already been active in several political arenas, including the 1992 Clinton/Gore campaign, and campaigns for Guy. Tom Carper and Attorney General Charlie Butler. She has also been involved in a number of smaller campaigns for local candidates in New Castle County. She has once again teamed up with the Carper campaign trail, and has stayed ac- tive with the Clinton/Gore bid for re-election. "What you'll find about work- ing on campaigns, especially smaller ones, is that everybody works as a team," she said. Working closely with politi- cians has given her a chance to de- velop views about the issues and the people who shape politics. Specifically citing Governor Carper, Cutbill said she enjoys working for candidates with ideals she upholds. "I work for people I really be- lieve in," she said. "Tom Carper is close to a saint as far as his ethics. I really respect him a lot. You al- so get a closer picture about what the others in politics are like, too. You have to balance it. Some- times you get disappointed." Cutbill is a senior at the Univer- sity of Delaware, pursuing a de- gree in history.
