My work experience so far has mainly been connected with economy, public finance and tax matters. I am committed to increasing the competitiveness of our economy and making Estonia the best place for investments and creation of jobs. I support responsible budget policy. I uphold the principle that the running costs of the state are covered by running income and that borrowing is justified for investments and extraordinary expenses. I contribute to the shaping of policies that raise the incomes of the people and increase national security. As a long-time resident of Viimsi municipality, I am acquainted with the life in Harju County, I know the situation there and the main issues that need to be solved.
