He observed: “Because of his (Daniel’s) Anguilla connection, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate him and his team on their victory and I look forward, because of that connection to closer collaboration going forward on the relationships between our neighbours in French/ Dutch St Martin and Anguilla…I hope this will all go well for improved relationships between Anguilla and St Martin even after Brexit takes place.”
Opposition Leader, Ms Palmovan Webster, said: “He (Daniel) is like a brother to me. Dr Gibbs and Mrs Gibbs have also played an important role…It’s a wonderful achievement and I also wanted to add my congratulations.”
Daniel Gibbs was born on January 8th, 1968 in Philipsburg, Sint Maarten. He is the son of Doctor Victor and Marie-Claude Gibbs.
