A paltry 21 percent of registered Stockton voters turned out for the election.

Measure A would increase Stockton’s sales tax to 9 percent. Measure B would tell city leaders to spend 65 percent of that new revenue on law enforcement, and 35 percent on getting out of bankruptcy.

City leaders say they would be forced to make drastic cuts, including closing all libraries and reducing fire department funding if Measure A fails.

But opponents aren’t sold on that argument, saying other cuts can be made through the bankruptcy process, including reducing public pension payouts.
