I am musician, small business owner, and politician. In the Riigikogu, I want to work on social issues, defend family values, support businesses and cultural workers. The underlying principle in everything I do is that the Republic of Estonia was founded to ensure the preservation of the Estonian nation, language, and culture for all times. The premise of our policies in every field must be that there would not be a Republic of Estonia without the Estonians. I want to do everything possible to protect the interests and the wellbeing of the Estonian nation.
