Merja Laaksonen


"All of us need well-functioning and reliable healthcare and emergency services at some point of our lives. "

I have during the past few decades been involved in municipal decision making in Siuntio, currently as the chair of the municipal council. Except for having won the trust of voters to make decisions about a broader set of issues at the municipal level, I have been for many years a member of the HUS council, and the Lohja health care district council.

It is important to work over the municipal boundaries to secure a well-functioning, flexible, and effective public health system. As your representative in the council of the self-governing region, I promise to do my best, so that these services can be always available to everyone regardless of age, language, background, gender, or economic situation.
