Redlands voters refused to bail out city leaders from having to finally make some hard choices in balancing the budget.

They also may have shown Mayor Pat Gilbreath the way out.

Measure ‘A’ would have increased the city’s sales tax by one half of one percent, but 54% of voters said ‘NO”.

Gilbreath remains outside the reelection bubble by 181 votes, in here bid for a new term.
