Mayor Kevin J. Lincoln was elected to office in November 2020. He is serving his first term as Mayor of Stockton beginning January 2021.
Born in Stockton, Mayor Lincoln was raised in an Army family and was inspired to serve others. Throughout his youth, Kevin served in many community outreach programs providing food and clothes to the homeless and those in need. Kevin also volunteered at the California Youth Authority where he spoke to and encouraged youth in the juvenile justice system.
With a desire to serve his Country, Kevin joined the United States Marine Corps (USMC) in 2001 and began his training at the military police academy. Kevin was later recruited by the White House Military Office and assigned to Marine One, where he would serve President George W. Bush.
Following his service in the military, Kevin worked for one of the nation’s top private security companies for eight years in Silicon Valley. He would ultimately serve as District Manager, responsible for an annual budget of over $55 million, a district support staff of 22 personnel, and a total employee base of over 1,300.
In 2013, Kevin felt the desire to resign his corporate position to serve the community of Stockton through full-time ministry at a local church. In his ministry work, Kevin served as the Executive Administrative Pastor overseeing the finances, implementation of the vision, daily operations, as well as community outreach initiatives. Kevin gets the most fulfillment by assisting those in need and helping them find the resources that will aid them and give them hope.
Kevin’s decision to run for mayor stemmed from this love of people, and desire to serve the City of Stockton. Mayor Lincoln believes Stockton is a city of potential, promise, hope, and healing. He will focus on the fundamental needs of the community and build bridges of trust to address and resolve issues including homelessness, public safety, civic engagement, and economic development, among others.
Kevin has an Associate of Arts in Business, a Bachelor of Science in Business Management, and a Master’s degree in Executive Leadership.
Kevin and his wife Bonnie have been married for 18 years and have two wonderful children.
