In St. Joseph, voters will be electing a new mayor. 

Before casting your ballot, we here at KQ2 want you to be prepared. That's why KQ2 will be broadcasting live online the second of two scheduled debates between the two candidates Bill McMurray and Beau Walker.

It is scheduled for next Monday, March 19 at 7 p.m. at the Bartlett Center on South 18th Street.

The public is invited to attend, however, if you can't make it, you will be able to view it as it's happening live on our website, kq2.com.

Both candidates say they're excited for the opportunity.

"I'd like to make a case for that approach and to apply for the job," McMurray said. "I'm applying for the job."

"We want the citizens to know that there is a very big difference between who I am and my opponent," Walker said. "They'll see that. I think it's important for them to come out."

This will be the first of two formal debates agreed to by the two candidates.

The first debate is scheduled for Thursday night at 6 p.m. at Benton High School.

Thursday, we're going to start asking you what kinds of questions you'd like to see asked during the debate.

Right now, we are right now under a marginal risk from the Storm Prediction Center for Wednesday night, but most of the severe weather will stay south of Kansas City. We are under a slight risk for severe weather Thursday through Friday and we'll have the possibility of strong to severe storms on Saturday.
