Helen Honkasaari


"At home in Turku"

Socialliberal. Feminist. Swedish-speaking. Politician. These are some of the attributes I assign to myself.
I'm a historian from Turku who wants to partake of the discussion on what my hometown should be like. For me decision-making means asking questions when and where they are needed. In Turku we will face some tough financial decisions in the future and I want to be there to safeguard a flourishing cultural city. We need to secure a high quality education, access to services and meaningful employment and leisure time.

I'm running for the second time in the municipal elections. I'm currently a deputy member on the board of Education, and a member of the Swedish division of the board of Education. I'm also active on the board of multiculturalism in Turku.
