Cory Mason (b. January 25, 1973) is a Democratic member of the Wisconsin State Assembly, representing the 62nd District since 2007. He also serves as Commissioner of the Redevelopment Authority of Racine.

Mason received his BA in Philosophy from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

He is a member of Habitat for Humanity, League of Conservation Voters, Racine Heritage Museum, Racine Rotary West, River Alliance of Wisconsin, Root River Council, and the Advisory Board of the University of Wisconsin Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention.[1]

On his campaign site Mason lists his views on a number of issues, including:[2]

  • Healthcare Reform — Reduce costs and cover more residents.
  • Supporting Education — "For too long we have been pitting students against property tax payers. It’s time to find a viable solution to make sure kids get the education they deserve."
  • Raising the Minimum Wage — "The first bill that Cory introduced was to raise the minimum wage to $7.25 an hour and then raise it every year thereafter at the rate of inflation. If it passed, it would mean a raise for 225,000 families in Wisconsin."
  • Sunshine on Government — "Cory introduced a bill to allow the public to have full access to the Legislature’s deliberations."
  • Saving SeniorCare — "Representative Mason is one of many legislators fighting to save SeniorCare."

Issues

Budget, 2011

The 2011 budget battle in Wisconsin was particularly unusual and contentious. Gov. Scott Walker's bill faced opposition from Democrats and citizen protestors in Madison, Wisconsin. At 3 a.m. on June 15, 2011, the Assembly passed the bill.

Rep. Cory Mason took offense to what he said would be $25 million in cuts to the Racine school district, proposed by Republicans who say they are trying to help.

“Don’t piss down my back and tell me it’s raining,” Mason said. “That is just insulting to the people I represent.”[3]
