Hon. Evalie A. Bradley

Evalie A. Bradley is an Anguillian politician and Member of the House of Assembly of Anguilla.

Early life and education

Mrs. Evalie Bradley nee Hughes was born on 12 October 1954.

She had her early education at the Road Primary School (now known as Adrian T. Hazell Primary) before going on to the Valley Secondary School. On completion of her secondary education, Mrs Bradley was among the first cohort of Anguillian students to have been granted a UK Technical Cooperation funded scholarship to pursue studies leading to a diploma in Executive Administrative Secretarial Science at the Sir Authur Lewis Technical College in St Lucia.

During Mrs Bradley’s span of almost 35 years in the Anguilla Public Service she underwent a number of management development and training programmes in the UK at the Thames Valley University in Slough, UK, The Maniitoba Institute of Management in Winnipeg Canada, and the UWI Institute of Business in St Augustine, Trinidad among many other regional and job specific training workshops and programmes in the region.

Career

Bradley is a retired senior Civil Service manager with a distinguished career including Deputy Director of Human Resources, Labour Commissioner, and Principal Assistant Secretary, Home Affairs.

On successful completion of her studies Mrs Bradley returned to Anguilla and was appointed at the Secretariat, the hub of Government Administration, as a very skilled Administrative Secretary. Mrs Bradley climbed every round of the Public Service ladder culminating with the post of Principal Assistant Secretary, a senior management post in the Chief Minister’s Office.

She held several high profile and challenging positions in the Anguilla Public Service including those of Clerk to the Executive Council and House of Assembly, Establishments Secretary/Human Resource, later restyled Deputy Director Employment, and Labour Commissioner. She also held several acting appointments as Permanent Secretary.

In 2001 Mrs Bradley was appointed to the post of Labour Commissioner – a job which she executed even handedly and professionally which left a marked impression with most of the employers and employees with whom she interacted – as she advocated the pillars on which a strong and positive employer/employee relationship is built – honesty, integrity, mutual respect and understanding for each other. In 2002 she successfully completed an International Labour Organisation sponsored certificate course in Mediation and Conciliation in Grenada.

In 2005 Mrs Bradley was transferred on promotion to the post of Principal Assistant Secretary in the Chief Minister’s Office prior to her retirement in 2007.

Running on an Anguilla United Front (AUF) ticket in the 22 April 2015 election, Bradley narrowly defeated Patrick Hanley of the Anguilla United Movement (AUM) by a single vote. Bradley secured 394 votes (49.81%) to Hanley's 393 votes (49.68%). In so doing, she (along with Cora Richardson-Hodge and Pam Webster) became the first elected women parliamentarian since the election of Abena Lake-Hodge in 1984.

Personal life

Bradley is widowed and the proud mother of four sons - Perin, Kwahme, Shakeem and Kareem and stepson Dale. She has five grandchildren – Dalicia, Keiron, Kamryn, Clayton and Ilian.

She is a resident of Little Harbour where she enjoys spending quality time with family and friends, cooking, baking, and entertaining others with her stage acting skills and monologues on social and other relevant issues.

Mrs Bradley for a number of years tutored students in typewriting in the Government’s Evening Institute Programme as well as privately. She is an active member and officer in the Methodist Church and has been a Local Preacher in the Anguilla Circuit for the past 23 years. She is also President of the Bethel Women’s Association.
