Mason's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
A Thriving Washington County
- Excerpt: "With more people working, we’ll have the resources to fund our schools, transportation infrastructure and public safety efforts. I will protect the Strategic Investment and Gain Share programs that have helped make our county the strongest job creator in Oregon."
Stable Housing & Home Ownership
- Excerpt: "I have a plan to help keep seniors in their homes by allowing a lock-in of property tax rate for homeowners over a certain age. I also have a plan to stabilize housing and offer renters a path to home ownership through a tax-credit savings plan that can be used for a down payment on a home."
Full Time Jobs for Oregonians
- Excerpt: "I’ll advocate for more full-time jobs by examining and eliminating barriers to economic prosperity, not by punishing employers who have been forced to cut hours to stay afloat."
- Excerpt: "I want to make sure everyone who wants a 40-hour-a-week job has access to one. We should reward small companies who provide their employees with stable paychecks and benefits with the same incentives we offer larger employers."
Support Our Schools
- Excerpt: "Accountability in spending, innovation in the classroom and expanding school options for families will be integral to ensuring our kids are receiving the best education we can give them. I am dedicated to finding solutions to improve the quality of Oregon’s education system for the next generation."
Fix the Economy
- Excerpt: "We need to make Oregon a friendly atmosphere for business so companies move in to Oregon, employ our citizens and grow our economy from the inside out. By creating jobs and reducing regulations on small businesses, we will see more of the development, entrepreneurship and innovation that Oregon is known for."
