Stockton Mayor Caught Working Full Time Job in New York

NEW YORK- On January 6, 2020, the mayor of Stockton, California was interviewed while working his full time job…in New York. Despite being the only full time member of Stockton’s City Council being paid a full time salary with benefits, Michael Tubbs is working a full time job as Co-Chair for billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s Presidential campaign. Stockton residents were surprised to see their mayor being interviewed while working another job in another state on another coast. When asked a basic question about the number of delegates needed by Bloomberg, who is funding his own campaign and not eligible for democratic debates, Tubbs doesn’t know the answer and deflects by saying, “ We have math guys for that. I’m the mayor”.

Mayor Tubbs has been widely criticized for being an absent mayor, spending most of his time traveling outside the city while promoting himself in paid appearances and using his city staff and resources to solicit millions of dollars, not for the city coffers, but for his nonprofit Reinvent Stockton Foundation he founded the same month he took office as mayor.

Campaign disclose records show that in 2017 he spent $49,000 in travel and food tabs, leaving roughly $800 in his account. Then in 2019 he spent $53,000, or nearly $9,000 a month, on food and travel in the first 6 months alone. Now he has taken a full time position for Bloomberg’s election campaign as Co Chair.

Tubbs is up for re-election himself and faces 7 challengers in the primary election March 3rd.

  1. I guess you can multitask, being Mayor in name only for Stockton, and hang on a billionres’s leg begging for scrape’s. Stockton deserves better!

  2. This absolutely kills me!!! Tubbs is just too much! He starts “Reinvent Stockton’ the same month he takes office, gives all this money to criminals, and the homeless population increased 200% since he’s taken office….what else can he possibly do wrong?!! Why hasn’t he been kicked out of office yet?! And who are these idiots that vote for this type of person?!! How about we all do America a favor and start researching the candidates before we vote?! Like seriously, we can’t even vote on a damn gas tax and get it right!! And if you think the politicians learned a lesson from just that single vote you’re right, they learned that they can’t jack with your heads and throw some confusing stuff in laws, bills, etc., and we’ll vote whatever way they want us to!! Come on guys….I know Tubbs was a crook since before he ran for office….I’ve taught in Stockton for 18 years and previously knew him….Leopard’s don’t change their spots!! Let’s get it right in 2020….stop voting my politicial party, the color of people’s skin, what religion they are, etc., and start looking at the candidate and laws & bills themselves. Our great state is going broke!! Our communities are at an all-time high for crime and deterioration!! LET’S FIX THIS!!! GET THE SUCKA’S OUT!!!
