In the Spotlight:
The Village Project, Inc. Co-founder & former and future candidate for Seaside City Council
At the March 5, 2020 Seaside City Council Meeting on the Campus Towne Project, Mrs. Mason used her public comments to the City Council and the Community on notice that she would indeed be running in the next election for a seat on the Seaside City Council.
A life-long resident of Seaside, has had an enormous impact on the City of Seaside, the local African American community, People of Color in particular and People of the Monterey County in general.
As March is Women's History Month, it seems especially appropriate to remember the honors she has received for her work as one of our most prominent local women leaders.
In 1999, Mrs. Mason received the Outstanding Woman of the Year Award from the Monterey County Commission on the Status of Women.
In 2010, Regina Mason was honored on the floor of the California State Assembly by (then) Assemblyman Bill Monning (now Senator) as the District's Woman of the Year.
Of course she has received much praise for her work with the Monterey County Branch NAACP (both as President and as Youth Council Advisor) and The Village Project, Inc.
According to her The Village Project, Inc. bio
"Regina is a mother, aunt, sister and mentor to young women and girls and is married to the love of her life, Mel Mason. Regina is a child of god and worships at Friendship Baptist Church in Seaside, CA"
