Former El Paso City Manager Joyce Wilson will joint the Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority.

Wilson was recently appointed to the board by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.

She will be on the authority until Feb. 1, 2021. The Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority plan local transportation projects around the El Paso region. 

“I’m honored and excited to be a part of the Camino Real RMA,” Wilson said in a statement. “I was City Manager at the time the Camino Real RMA was first established and I worked closely TxDOT leadership and others on the first transportation tax increment zone which helped launch the 2008 $1B mobility investment plan. So it will be rewarding to be a part of the board and help shape future transportation investment.”

Wilson is currently the CEO of Workforce Solutions Borderplex and is also a member of the National Association of Workforce Boards and is in a leadership position with the Texas Association of Workforce Boards.

“I’ve not been actively engaged in transportation planning for a number of years to it would be premature to speculate until I know what is in the queue right now,” Wilson said. “I do believe that there are opportunities for binational connectivity and traffic management systems on a broader regional scale. Plus I’m sure there are a host of TxDOT and MPO projects awaiting funding. I look forward to getting up to speed on current activities and near term plans.”
