Diane Glasser received the Hubert Horatio Humphrey award this weekend from the state Democratic Party.
Glasser has been active in the Broward and Florida Democratic parties for 34 years. She's currently the first vice chairwoman of the state party.
"I've always been a Democrat. I will die as a Democrat," she said.
State Party Chairwoman Karen Thurman, who was challenged at one point for the job by Glasser, called her a "remarkable woman. She works for Democrats 24/7. She's a dynamo."
At 79, Glasser doesn't have any interest in slowing down. She served a single term on the Tamarac city commission in the 1990s, and she is now campaigning for a commission seat in the November 2008 election.
