The Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce has selected Sandra Wilson to serve as its new president.
Wilson is a city commissioner and has most recently worked as the public affairs officer for the NewPage paper mill in Wickliffe. Wilson succeeds Elaine Spaulding, who stepped down in March after 13 years as the Chamber of Commerce's president.
The Paducah Renaissance Alliance wants to expand its advisory board from nine to 15 members. Executive Director Lisa Thompson and Chairperson Darlene Mazzone lobbied for the increase at the Paducah City Commission meeting Tuesday, saying the move would bring more diversity to the board. Commissioner Sandra Wilson agreed.
“The PRA board would have more people to give them ideas, more people to submit suggestions about what could be done, so I think it’s a great idea to expand it,” Wilson said.
