Stockton Mayor Candidate Michael Tubbs tweeted out a picture of a President Barack Obama endorsement on Wednesday.
A quote and photo of Obama is attached.
“I am proud to endorse Michael Tubbs in his bid to become Stockton’s next Mayor. Michael’s service as a Councilmember illustrates that he understands the need for every Stocktonian to have safer neighborhoods, stronger schools, and a voice in the political process. His story is the American story, and Michael will work tirelessly to ensure that Stockton reaches its full potential."
Tubbs’ opponent current Mayor Anthony Silva posted a nearly nine minute video on Facebook Wednesday about his roots in Stockton and his family.
Silva wrote in part:
"Sometimes there is so much noise in a campaign everything gets lost in translation. Take a few minutes and watch this video."
