My name is Les Mason, and for those of you whom I don't know, I want to use this as a means to introduce
myself. I have been a McPherson County resident since 1963, and a lifelong Republican. My wife, Kala, and
I were married 44 years, raised three terrific children to adulthood, with two grandchildren, and
started a business in 1990 from the ground floor - The Old Muffin Factory. We successfully sold that business, after
building and managing it for over 27 years, in 2018. Sadly, I lost Kala to a nearly seven-year battle with cancer, in
April of 2020.
My initial decision to seek election to the Kansas House of Representatives 73rd district seat came only after
much prayerful thought and consideration. I believe my life experiences have qualified me for this position.
In addition to being a political junkie since I was nine years old, cutting my teeth on the Johnson-Goldwater
election in 1964, my qualifications and experience would include:
Past-President, Kiwanis Club of McPherson
Past-Lt. Governor, Kansas District of Kiwanis
Member of inaugural Leadership McPherson class
Former Sec. Treas., Rolling Acres Golf Club
Two-term board member, United Way of McPherson
Campaign volunteer, Dick Nichols for Congress
District Director, Fifth District - Congressman Dick Nichols
Past-President, McPherson Chamber of Commerce
Contributing conservative columnist for McPherson Sentinel for four years
Sales manager for W-R Milling Co. for 12 years
Self-employed for 27 years, The Old Muffin Factory
Having grown up and raised a family in the McPherson community, I cherish the traditional values that so exemplify McPherson County. It is those values that
I have carried with me to Topeka, and that have driven my every decision, my every vote.
It has been one of the great honors of my life to represent the 73rd District, and I will appreciate your continued support.
