I'm running for office
I'm running for office in the municipal elections in 2021 in Espoo, Finland I live with my husband and two daughters in Espoonlahti, in Hannusjärvi. in Espoo I have lived since the early 1990s. I was born in Savo and my family is from Eastern Finland.
As a mother and a lawyer I have skills and heart to join in to build Espoo a city with more circular economy, which can afford well-being services to its citizens. Espoo has set its goals high and seem to be on its way to gain them.
The idea of running for office in the municipal elections got a daylight when we returned to Espoo in the autumn of 2017 after four years of living in Belgium. I looked around for a moment and realized that in the coming years almost everything interesting in Finland will take place at the municipal level and challenge us to adapt to change. I also realised that many of my friends and colleagues living in Espoo also were involved one way or the other in the work for City of Espoo. I want to be involved in this work, too.
