Replacement process for Sen. Paull Shin set in motion

Staff writerJanuary 8, 2014 

The Everett Herald has a post today rounding up what steps must be taken to replace state Sen. Paull Shin in the 21st Legislative District. Shin, D-Edmonds, announced Tuesday that he was immediately retiring, partly due to a recent diagnosis of Alzheimer's.

Democratic State Rep. Marko Liias, who had already announced he would seek Shin's Senate seat in the 2014 election, is looking to be appointed to the position, reports Herald staffer Evan Smith.

Others have stepped up to say they are interested in Liias' House seat if Liias is appointed to the Senate.
