Kabat Starts Term As Mayor, Swantz Becomes Council Pres
La Crosse's newest mayor says every citizen of the community is important...
And in his inaugural address, Tim Kabat says successes at city hall will be shared by everyone.
Kabat says La Crosse faces many challenges...citing too much poverty in the city, and the need to rebuild neighborhoods. Besides having a new mayor in charge, the city council now has a new president, too, with Dick Swantz defeating Audrey Kader for that position, by a 12-to-5 vote.
