A Genuine Politician? How This 22-Year-Old Councilman is Changing a Struggling City

The new documentary “True Son” follows his inspiring campaign for Stockton City Council. Fusion’s Alicia Menendez sat down with the young politician to talk about his decision to return to Stockton, if he believes he can be the next Cory Booker, and how he plans to change the city he calls home.
