Michael Tubbs Becomes Stockton’s First Black And Youngest Mayor

26-year-old City Councilman Michael Tubbs has been elected to become Stockton, California’s youngest and first African-American mayor reports Record Net:

Tubbs, 26, also appeared headed to becoming Stockton’s youngest mayor, and he noted that many at his downtown victory party were younger still than he.

“We have a great opportunity to show the nation, ‘How do you reinvent yourself?’ ” Tubbs told the audience, which included his beaming mother seated in the front row.

“I’m tired of talking about where we’ve been. I’m more interested in talking about where we’re going. We have to mature as a community and start demanding solutions.”


This is a good time to be a Black person in politics despite Trump’s hate!
