Rich Ibarra / Capital Public Radio Michael Tubbs has taken on ambitious and innovative programs in his first year as Stockton Mayor. In October he launched a universal basic income program providing a $500 monthly stipend for certain residents, a partnership with the non-profit Advance Peace to reduce gang violence by paying criminals to stay off the streets and most recently a $20 million scholarship for Stockton Unified School District graduates to attend a four-year college with $1,000 in hand. Critics see these programs as controversial and question the leadership of the 27-year old mayor. Tubbs joins Insight to reflect on his first year in office and the road ahead.
