The New Head of the Chamber of Commerce?

Sometimes you have to add the numbers.

The El Paso Inc. this week announced that the El Paso Chamber of Commerce will soon announce a new President.

The El Paso Chamber is almost ready to announce the organization’s next CEO. We hear it’s a well-connected El Pasoan.

Today posted this:

Sylvia Acosta, who led the YWCA Paso del Norte Region through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and brought in the biggest gift in the history of the organization, has resigned as chief executive officer, the organization announced Monday.

Acosta could not be reached for comment, but in a prepared statement said: “It’s been an incredible five years, and I will be forever proud of the growth and outstanding achievements of YWCA. I strongly believe in YWCA’s mission of eliminating racism and empowering women, and I will continue to live these values as I step into my next opportunity.  I look forward to continuing to support YWCA.”

Looks like Sylvia Acosta will be the new President of the El Paso Chamber. You heard it here first.

I wonder if, under Ms. Acosta’s leadership, the Chamber will continue its class war against El Paso’s working class and small businesses.


  1. I’m sure Ms Acosta is a lovey person. But my God if this town isn’t incestuous. I can’t decide who is worse. The carpetbaggers or the insiders.
