As a member of the Social Affairs Committee, my main task is dealing with the rights and the labour market problems of the people with special needs. The greatest challenges for me are stopping the decreasing of our population, improving the availability of health care services and implementing the work capacity reform. I would like to contribute to the security of our country and to solving the issues connected with the development of Pärnu County, like the development of business life, well-paying jobs or good transport connections.
