OK, signing off for tonight. But with Michael Tubbs winning a seat on the City Council tonight, I figured it’s as good a time as any to remind people we were onto this guy five years ago.
Here’s a look back at our coverage of the steady rise of Stockton’s new Area 6 City Council member:
Nov. 9, 2007: Tubbs wins Alice Walker essay contest.
Dec. 30, 2010: Tubbs reflects on his White House internship.
Sept. 21, 2011: Tubbs delivers the student address at Stanford’s 121st Freshman Convocation.
Not bad for a kid from south Stockton by way of Franklin High. Not bad at all.
