When I was at the head of one of the rural municipalities with the youngest population in Estonia, the rapidly growing Rae Municipality, my aim was to make it a nice place to live where our young families can raise their children in peace of mind, knowing that all possibilities for their best development are ensured. As a father of two small boys, it is my dream that our dear Estonia would also be like that, both today and in the future.
