RACINE — City of Racine Municipal Judge Rebecca Mason announced that she will step down from her post.
The announcement was made Monday via Mason's personal Facebook page. "It has been my privilege to serve as City of Racine Municipal Judge for the last 2½ years," the post states. "I am honored to have been appointed by this City Council and elected twice with overwhelming support of the voters from the city that I love so much."
The local attorney and wife of Mayor Cory Mason was initially appointed to the position in 2016 to replace Mark Nielsen, who was elected as a circuit court judge. She was then elected to the post in an unopposed race in 2017, and won re-election to a four-year term last April.
According to the post, Mason said her resignation was prompted by dedication to her family and clients and taking her career "in a different direction." Mason said she will step down effective Feb. 22.
