In his address for marlborough.news, Danny Kruger expressed his belief in how to support those who are now his constituents, whom he represents: "Every day I discover another amazing local charity or community business or volunteer project.  This gives me confidence that the deep social problems our area faces - challenges for young people leaving schools without the skills they need;  the plight of older people struggling to get medical or social care; families living in poverty - can be tackled by a combination of good government, national and local, and community effort."  We wish him well.....
