Riigikogu

Üldinfo

I studied to become a teacher. I worked in school for more than ten years, but I have spent most of my working life in civil service. I have been Mayor of Võhma, Managing Director of the Association of Estonian Cities, member of three Riigikogus, Minister of Social Affairs, and Minister of Public Administration. I have five grandchildren.
I want to stand for a fair and solidary state. I have the experience and knowledge to have my say in the areas of the national social and health policy, regional policy, and the state reform. I definitely stand for the interests of my electoral district – Järva county and Viljandi county.
