Member of Parliament for three terms, Chair of the City Assembly of the City of Raseborg since 2009 and farm owner.
I was elected Member of Parliament in 2007. During my twelve years in Parliament, I have experienced interesting events and exciting times in politics. I have been a member of several committees and chair of the Committee for the Future. Now I am chair of the Swedish Parliamentary Group and member of the Defence Committee.
I believe I still have a great deal to give in politics. I believe my experience, knowledge and network are good assets for continued work in the Parliament. I am eager to contribute to the work for a better society and doing so by advancing the values of the Swedish People’s Party of Finland.
During my years as a MP, I have learnt that spending time with family and friends and doing exercise is a very important counterbalance to the sometimes extremely hectic work in the Parliament. My family is the most important thing in my life. My wife and children are also my biggest support.
Cross-country skiing, running and cycling are my great passions. History and literature are also interests of mine. Whenever I have a moment of free time, I take on one of the many books I am reading.
Working on my farm gives me also great satisfaction. Being a farmer is an important part of my identity and agriculture plays a big part in my political career and work.
