Politico featured an article about inaugural Trials class alum Mayor Michael Tubbs and his bold ideas as mayor of Stockton, California.
"Out in Stockton, California, there’s an experiment underway in millennial-led government that’s trying to pull a city back from the brink using what is essentially privately funded socialism.
The experiment’s name is Michael Tubbs.
The 27-year-old mayor of a city of 307,000—26 when he knocked out the Republican incumbent, the same night Donald Trump won, in his own status quo-bulldozing election—is looking to redefine the sense of what works through redefining how people think about work."
