A Woman Defending The Welfare state

I’m 36 years old trade Union official and city councilor of Rovaniemi. I have 4 year old child and husband who is a nature-photographer. 


Poverty of families and children must be decreased

  • Higher salaries, full-time job should be possible
  • Social and economic safety net / welfare system should be wide enough, simpler and more humane
  • Early childhood education/daycare must be free in future
  • Every child should have a free hobby (the model of Finland)

More work for the bright future of Lapland

  • Money for infrastucture: 2 track railway from Oulu to Rovaniemi, more investments in roads, advance electric airplanes and cars
  • We need work opportunities and investments from the Green deal: a controlled transition from fossil economy to Green ways of energy production, new industy
  • We need high quality education from elementary school to higher ecudation: we need professionals so that Lapland and it’s people can succeed
