Michael Tubbs

Mayor of Stockton, California


Tubbs in 2019 won the John F. Kennedy New Frontier Award and in 2017 was on Forbes’ “30 Under 30” list. The Stanford graduate was elected mayor of Stockton in 2016 at age 26, becoming the youngest mayor in U.S. history of a city with a population of at least 100,000. His leadership, along with his progressive agenda, has thrust Tubbs into the national spotlight.

Oftentimes when we think about leadership it’s so much about the person with the microphone or the bullhorn who’s talking [but] really the most effective act of leadership is listening.”
