Two measures up for vote today could determine the future of Stockton. The city is facing two of the most important votes in its history.
Stockton's future is hanging on measures A and B, today.
Measure A will raise the sales tax three-fourths of a cent to 9 percent citywide.
Measure B tells city leaders to spend the majority of the money on police and the rest on paying off Stockton's $11 million debt.
Both measures need just a simple majority of 50 percent to pass.
If the sales tax measure fails, all of Stockton's public libraries will shut down and then the city will start closing firehouses.
Staring fate in the face, city councilman Michael Tubbs has commented "We've been cutting for four years. What else do we have to cut?"
