Stubbs implores Dems to value every vote

Dane County Supv. Shelia Stubbs told Dems they can no longer accept "no" when it comes to getting people to the polls and need to ensure that every vote counts as they seek to take back Wisconsin.

Stubbs recounted how she won a seat on the board after being unhappy with the supervisor who represented her neighborhood. She said she did everything from helping register 17-year-olds getting ready to turn 18 to hiring people in her neighborhood to drive those voters to the polls. She even hired people to stand on the corner with campaign signs as she engaged the community.

But most importantly, she said, she worked to make people understand why they need to vote and she gave them a reason to vote for her.

"What I did is I spoke truthness to the people," she said. "I said I'm a voice for you. I said I’m listening to you and I’m going to fight for you. You want someone who's going to listen to you. You want someone who's going to fight for you and most importantly, you want someone at the table who's going to voice your opinion. Is that important? Because if you're not at the table, you're not being heard."
