Elin Andersson


"Service on time- close to you"

I have a master in political science and have extensive experience in administration and law, something that supports me in my assignments.
Right now I am sitting as a deputy in the Porvoo council and as chairman of the Building and Environment Committee in Porvoo.

I live in Krigarbyn in Porvoo and one of our pastimes is renovating our house. As the mother of an almost 1-year-old, family issues are close to my heart, but also the environment, construction and social and health care are among my interests in politics.

Nowadays I work at the University of Applied Sciences Haaga-Helia as an International affairs specialist. I have previously worked for several different interest organizations such as Svenska Kvinnoförbundet i Sörnäs and FDUV, the interest organization for Swedish-speaking people with intellectual disabilities in Finland.

-Cases that can be handled digitally. for example. prescription renewal, should not take up time.
-There is low-threshold mental health care close at hand and on time for all ages, young people, adults and the elderly. In all ages, mental illness has increased and this must be addressed.

Elderly care must be developed in collaboration with social care. It is important:
