I was born and grew up in Haapsalu. After graduating from university, I moved to Kohila municipality, where I live to this day. I have become firmly rooted in the rocky limestone ground of Rapla county, I have built my family there and raised two sons.
The survival of the Estonian state and people is clearly connected with changes in rural areas. Strong local governments and the possibility of life in the country are the values I stand for. As a forester, I feel responsible for the sustainability of forestry. Estonia should be a real forest country, it should not be just an empty word.

  • Aitäh, hea istungi juhataja! Hea ettekandja! Tegelikult siin saalis me oleme arutanud ju korduvalt ja korduvalt, kus karistusmäärad, ma mõtlen just siin rahalist karistust, tõsi, sunniraha otseselt seda ju ei ole, aga on kasvanud mitte ainult 10 korda, vaid vaata et isegi 100 korda, ligi 100 korda.
