About the Guest

Michael D. Tubbs is the mayor of Stockton, California, one of the state’s largest cities. He was elected in 2016 at age 26, defeating the Republican incumbent the same night Donald Trump won. The youngest and first African American mayor in Stockton’s history, he is rapidly making a name for himself as a millennial mayor, one who has embraced radical policy options such as universal basic income for addressing urban poverty.
