A native of Saaremaa, I have long promoted regional policy in Western Estonia. I continue to participate in developing legislation in the field of security, to ensure a safe future for Estonia. Ten years of political experience and 20 years of work in law enforcement bodies have given me the necessary background for this. I think it is important to stand for the stable development of both the national and the international security, while also creating a supportive business environment in rural areas, to stop depopulation. I work honestly and with all my heart.
