Mayor Michael Tubbs is Stockton’s first African American Mayor and the youngest mayor of any major city in America, elected at 26. In his first year, Mayor Tubbs secured $20M to launch Stockton Scholars, which aims to increase the number of Stockton students entering and graduating from college.  With an innovative public-private partnership supported by a $1M grant, Mayor Tubbs launched SEED, the nation’s first-ever mayor-led guaranteed income pilot. His latest initiative is Mayors for a Guaranteed Income (MGI), a coalition of mayors advocating for a guaranteed income to ensure that all Americans have an income floor. Under his leadership, Stockton has been named an All-America City three times and in 2018, was named the second most fiscally healthy city in the country, and homicides have been reduced by 40%.
