LA CROSSE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – After eight years in office, Tim Kabat is preparing to step down as La Crosse’s mayor.
Kabat says he’s proud of the city’s quality of life improvements, the addition of hundreds of affordable housing units and the transparency of city government during his tenure.
He hopes La Crosse will continue moving in a positive direction once the pandemic has passed.
Kabat said, “What I’m hopeful for is that we continue this momentum, that we rebound from COVID-19 and the economic challenges that we’ve all been facing in the last twelve months and that we can just continue to be good stewards of this place.”
Kabat chose not to run for a third term, and Mitch Reynolds defeated Vicki Markussen in the April election. Reynolds will be sworn in as mayor Tuesday.
