A member of the Renew Europe Group in the European Committee of the Regions (Renew Europe CoR) Mikk Pikkmets, Mayor of Lääneranna Rural Municipality Council, Estonia, passed away on Tuesday 29 September following a traffic accident he suffered last week.

Mayor since 2017, Pikkmets was a member of Renew Europe CoR since the new mandate that started in January 2020, as well as a member of the Renew Europe CoR Bureau. He was also a member of the Commission for Natural Resources, the Commission for Territorial Cohesion and the CoR’s Finance and Administration Commission. Between 2009 and 2014, Pikkmets worked as a European Parliament assistant to Vilja Savisaar-Toomast MEP of the Estonian Centre Party.

He leaves behind a wife and three children. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

A virtual condolence book will be set up during the next European Committee of the Regions plenary 12-14 October. Messages of condolence can also be sent to Renew-Europe@cor.europa.eu with “Mikk Pikkmets” in the subject line. They will be included with the condolence book.
