La Crosse mayor unopposed in spring election

Write-in candidates still possible

Nominations are now closed for the Spring Elections, and La Crosse Mayor Tim Kabat is running unopposed.

A candidate running for mayor has not gone without competition in nearly 30 years, since former Mayor Pat Zielke ran for re-election in 1989.

A write-in candidate could still run for the position, but until then Mayor Kabat says he will continue focusing on making our city a better place.

“We’ve got a great direction and a lot of momentum, and really that’s my plan, to continue those efforts and to really focus on the next four years and trying to accomplish the goals that I’ve got set out for the city as well as just, again, make this a great place to live and work,” said Mayor Kabat.

Even though he is running unopposed, Mayor Kabat says he still plans on hosting occasional campaign events to hear from La Crosse residents.
