Michael Tubbs has devoted his political life to fighting economic inequality in Stockton -- the Northern California city where he was born and raised. Elected Mayor in 2016, Tubbs has worked to reinvent the formerly bankrupt city. This past year, he spearheaded a universal basic income pilot program. Already identified as a rising figure in the progressive movement, Tubbs isn’t even thirty years old yet, making him the youngest mayor of an American city of more than 100,000 people.

On February 13, 2019, Mayor Tubbs came to The Sydney Goldstein Theater in San Francisco to talk
with Dan Pfeiffer, co-host of Pod Save America and a former senior advisor to President Obama. Join me now for a conversation with Mayor Michael Tubbs.
