Rep. Cory Mason (l) seen here with Racine County Executive Jim Ladwig at the Oct. 27 Mount Pleasant Village Board meeting.

 

State Rep. Cory Mason is focused on winning re-election next week, but he is also seriously considering running for Racine County executive.

Mason is a Democrat who represents most of the City of Racine in the 66th Assembly District, and he is running for a fifth term against Libertarian George Meyers.

But, he told Racine County Eye Tuesday, after Jim Ladwig confirmed that he is resigning to lead RAMAC (Racine Area Manufacturers and Commerce), Mason was approached by several people to run for the county’s highest office.

“I am honored that many people would think of me for County Executive,” he wrote in a message. “I am giving it serious consideration.”

Former Caledonia President and current Human Services Director Jonathan Delagrave announced Tuesday that he is running for County Executive.

Mason said he likes that leading the county is an opportunity to serve residents on a more local level.

“Serving the residents of Racine County at the local level where you are closer to the people has real possibilities for job training, economic development and other important issues,” he added.

Until the polls close Tuesday, though, Mason’s aim is to garner enough votes to return him to Madison.

“For the next week, my focus is on my re-election to the state Assembly,” he stated.
