Sen. Paull Shin

By Sen. Paull Shin
For Northwest Asian Weekly

Editor’s note: Sen. Paull Shin issued the following statement on his vote on Senate Bill 6239 to allow same-sex marriage.

I want to thank you for your understanding during these past weeks as I considered my vote on Senate Bill 6239 concerning marriage equality. My office has received hundreds of phone calls, e-mails, and letters, and I know that this is a very important issue to many of you in the 21st district. As your senator, there is no question that you deserve to know the reasoning behind my vote on this bill. Read the full story

OPINION: Sen. Shin supports governor’s sales tax proposal

OPINION: Sen. Shin supports governor’s sales tax proposal

Sen. Paull Shin

Sen. Paull Shin is supporting Gov. Chris Gregoire’s proposal to ask the voters to increase the state sales tax in order to offset the drastic cuts that would be necessary to balance the state budget. But he is concerned that the increase doesn’t go far enough.

Shin, D-Edmonds, said that in the 43 years he has lived in Washington, the state has never experienced such an unprecedented economic downturn. “We are in an emergency situation,” Shin said. “If we are going to increase the sales tax, let’s do so in a way that truly has an impact on education, public safety, and social services.”

BLOG: Even after a car accident, Sen. Shin serious about commitments

BLOG: Even after a car accident, Sen. Shin serious about commitments

Last Saturday, after attending the White House dinner in Washington, D.C., to honor President of the Republic of South Korea Lee Myung-Bak, Sen. Paull Shin rushed back to Seattle to attend Northwest Asian Weekly’s Pioneer Awards gala at the China Harbor Restaurant.

What the emcee didn’t say and what the audience didn’t know was that Shin was involved in a car accident before he arrived. He hit a concrete wall. Shin was fine, besides being a little dizzy.

The damage to his car is estimated at $10,000. I suspect that he was exhausted after a hectic trip.

Shin could have skipped the Pioneer Awards dinner with a good reason. But he didn’t.

He had committed to coming and watching two of his good friends, John Kwak and Kenny Lee, receive their Asian American Pioneer Awards. Shin’s promises are golden. Read the full story

Commentary: An open letter to the citizens of Washington state to help protect public services

Sen. Paull Shin

By Sen. Paull Shin, D–Edmonds
For Northwest Asian Weekly

My fellow citizens, I write to you today about a revenue proposal that could help protect public services that we all rely on.

As you know, we are dragging ourselves out of the deepest recession this country has ever seen. My first day in the legislature was almost two decades ago, so I remember well how many times you have heard the cries from us down in Olympia about the deep and painful cuts we have been forced to make to government services.
