Mayor of Stockton, California. Location: La Palma, Stockton, CA. At the age of 22, Michael Tubbs became the youngest member of the Stockton, California City Council. At the age of 26, he went on to become the youngest mayor of a city in America. Over the flavors of La Palma, his favorite Mexican restaurant in Stockton, Michael shares all that has led him to this moment and all of the problems he has confronted, including growing up in poverty with a father in prison. He talks about the transformative power of a meal to be a way we can all connect and unite our own communities, and how he uses "youth" and "optimism" as a superpower.
