I am an open person with a positive outlook and yearning for knowledge. I cherish honesty, morality and ethics. My political leanings are national conservative. I support traditional family values. As a former mayor of Saue, I am well aware of the needs on the national as well as the local level. I will work towards bringing Estonia out of the democratic, demographic and economic crisis. Estonia must act like a dignified and independent country, keeping value based politics and its national interests at heart. I will do my best to ensure this.
