209 Times Stockton 4 Comments

STOCKTON- A week after cutting off speakers from Black Lives Matter during public comment and mocking a woman as mentally ill as she was being escorted out at his request, Mayor Michael Tubbs gives a half hearted apology from the dais. During last week’s city council meeting Stockton resident Kathleen Gapusan, an elderly disabled retired nurse, became upset by Tubbs’ rudeness towards members of the audience. As a result she began lambasting Tubbs from the audience leading to the mayor having her escorted out by security. As she was being escorted out Tubbs repeatedly exclaimed, “next week take your meds” implying to was mentally ill.

Tubbs apologized to her briefly before the meeting after a week of criticism from the public. However, Gapusan still spoke out.

But some felt a private apology was not enough and demanded he apologize publicly in the same fashion he mocked her.

At the end of the meeting he conceded by announcing he apologized as he nervously fumbled through paperwork, rather than actually addressing her from the dais.

Afterwards Gapusan said she is looking into the possibility of suing Mayor Tubbs for defamation and discrimination.

P. S. Yes that’s a track suit underneath his blazer.

  1. What is wrong with this city. This is a mayor. I don’t care where he went to school. He’s 27 years, never had, now his the mayor of a city of 330,000 people. No wonder Stockton is a laughing stock. Come on people we can do better than this. This is why there are so many people are leaving the city.

  2. This mayor doesn’t check the city look this area in Manthey road/close to van Buskirk park is shit area
    Need some kiosks for family to have a lunch and do something recreational
    Baseball field for kids need to be taking care of
    Cal trans and the rest of the city departments don’t do nothing for this area
    It’s is really abandoned
    All the time citizens call they tell you call another department
    City officials don’t do nothing and they do have a lot supervisors doing nothing just eating donuts and coffee not only collecting a big check from our taxes and don’t do anything for the city or areas
    Don’t have sidewalks,don’t have lights, fencing is running down and the all area is a shit
    Come in see for yourself and check what I’m talking about it
    We really appreciate if you do something to make it better and look better city
