I am a 50-year-old IT professional running for Tampere City Council. I have more than 25 years of international experience in software development consulting and product development. Having lived in different countries and cultures, I have wide understanding how societies work and what are good and not as good ways of organizing public affairs.
EDUCATION – SCIENCE – TECHNOLOGY
My main themes for the elections are related to education, science and technology, which I believe, are crucial for the success of Tampere in the future. I would like to develop Tampere to the direction of a recognized international science and university city.
