PROFILE

Evan Gums is the incumbent Representative for District 4 and the current Minister for Infrastructure, Communications, Utilities, Housing, Agriculture, and Fisheries.

Evan McAuthur Gumbs was born on 5 February 1964 and hails from the village of Long Ground Anguilla. The son of the late Alfred Gumbs aka Fred, who is the founder of the Highway Tyre Service and Ms. Clara Gumbs, Evan is the seventh of eight children.

He attended the Valley Primary School and later the then Valley Secondary School (today’s Albena Lake Hodge Comprehensive School).  After graduation from VSS, he was employed in the construction sector for a few years and then the tourism/hospitality industry and finally joined the highway Tyre service family business of which he is a part owner.

He is the founder of the now famous, John T. Memorial Cycle race that brings cyclists and fans from across the Caribbean for this annual event. He has also served as the President of the Anguilla Cycling Association and played on the National Basketball team.

A student of politics, he has always observed political development in Anguilla especially during the reign of the Hon. James Ronald Webster.  In 2005, the people of Valley South asked him to contest the general election as a candidate of the Anguilla United Movement (AUM) which he did and lost. In his second bid to be elected in 2010, he won the Valley South, District 4 seat and is presently the elected representative for Valley South in the government of Anguilla and Minister of Infrastructure, Communications, Utilities and Housing.

His motto in life is all about helping, caring and elevating his people to a better way of life while remaining true to God and maintaining his integrity.

Gumbs is married to Dawn Gumbs nee Richardson and has two daughters, Evier and Dawvier Gumbs.
