Markus Myllyniemi

A Green Party Municipal Councillor and a Municipal Elections Candidate in Kirkkonummi

Who Am I?

I’m a 25-year-old born-and-bred Kirkkonummi guy who has lived here for almost all of his life. My passions include jogging, hiking, and nature photography. My family consists of myself and my Boston
terrier Minni who manages to wake me up each morning with a spring in her step.

I’m studying history at the University of Helsinki and economics at Aalto University in addition to my political work. During the corona spring of 2020, I started my own company that sells media and
communications services to hundreds of clients.

In life, my most important values are compassion, honesty, and
entrepreneurship. I sincerely believe that the Finnish welfare system is our key stepping stone to success, and we should do everything in our power to preserve it for generations to come.

My Vision for Our Town

An Economically Responsible Kirkkonummi

I want to make sure that we fix our municipality’s economy without raising taxes. However, I don’t want to see future spending cuts targeted at those who are our society’s most vulnerable, like children and the elderly. I also want to make entrepreneurship easier by improving the co-operation between the municipality and local entrepreneurs.

A Healthy and
Well-to-do Kirkkonummi

Welfare is, fundamentally, a universal right. In the future, children are allowed to study in safe and high-quality spaces. Additionally, seniors can age in dignity in a homelike environment. By increasing subsidies for sports- and
culture-related voluntary organizations, we can directly counter the growing costs of health and social care.

A Safe and Peaceful
Kirkkonummi

The majority row- and detached house areas of Kirkkonummi, like Veikkola, Laajakallio, and
Sundsberg, are kept as majority small house areas under my watch. We must put an end to the enduring noise pollution plaguing our
villages. I’ll make sure that the Veikkola noise barrier is finished as soon as possible!

Testimonials

I couldn’t recommend voting Markus Myllyniemi in the coming election enough. Nowadays, Markus is a Green party candidate, but, in his case, party colors don’t make a difference. For example, Markus decided to start pushing for a noise barrier that had been planned for decades, and thanks to his work, it was built. Markus’ next objective is to expand the barrier to the Northern side as well. Markus is genuinely interested in local issues and ready to listen.

I have gotten to know Markus through our joint political work together. Working with him was exciting, and ideas always turned into reality. In the beginning, the contrast between Markus’ youthful looks and shrewd mind was confusing. In issues relating to the disabled, Markus quickly understood the key issues and started to work towards fixing them. Markus Myllyniemi is a person I value significantly as a political figure, an innovator, and a friend.
