The Sister City Story
Sister City relationships are officially recognized through Sister City agreements signed by the respective mayor or responsible governmental official of each city and ratified by each city council or it’s equivalent. Stockton’s participation in Sister Cities International began in 1959, when Mayor Dean DeCarli and a delegation of Stocktonians traveled to Shimizu, Japan, to sign a Sister City Agreement.

The program is operated by the Sister City Association of Stockton, an independent non-profit corporation, with an 18-member
