I am running for the Tampere city council in the 2012 municipal elections because I feel passionately about equality and sustainability. As a city councillor for the past 12 years and a member of parliament I have the skills and experience needed to get things done. More information about me and my background you can read in my short English bio.

2) Caring Tampere
