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.
On his campaign site Mason lists his views on a number of issues, including:
- 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."
