Detailed Information

Michael Tubbs was elected mayor of Stockton, California at 26 years old, making him the youngest and first African American mayor in the city’s history. Tubbs is best known for introducing a philanthropically funded basic income trial in the city — the first government-backed experiment of its kind in the US — which is still reeling from declaring bankruptcy in 2012. He’s made initiatives aimed at ending inequality the cornerstone of his tenure as mayor.
