Stockton Mayor Says He'll Be "More Restrained" But Won't Resign

Listen Now:
Stockton Mayor Anthony Silva says he’ll try to be more restrained, but resign? “No.” Listen now to his full interview with Insight’s Beth Ruyak.

The mayor of Stockton has been facing intense opposition in recent weeks, and some critics say he’s to blame.

Mayor Anthony Silva publicly criticized fellow city council members and the city manager ahead of a vote for putting a tax proposition on the ballot for the fall.

His comments in that council meeting led to an investigation into allegations he illegally recorded a conversation with the city manager, and now people are talking about recalling Silva less ten months after being elected.

We talked with the mayor today about these issues and what it's like to do his job.
