LA CROSSE, Wis. -

La Crosse mayoral candidates Tim Kabat and Doug Farmer will participate in a debate on Thursday at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship's building from 7-8:30 p.m.

The debate is sponsored by the Green Sanctuary Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of La Crosse and will be moderated by University of Wisconsin-La Crosse professor and political analyst Joe Heim.

The non-profit organization says it’s sponsoring the debate as a community education event "to promote awareness of threats to our environment." One question will address that concern; the rest of the questions will come from the moderator and the audience.
