After going through some rough times in my personal life at the beginning of 2003, after carefully reconsidering my current career conditions, and after consulting with some close friends, I decided to embark myself into a new Business venture that will be directly linked to my native cultural roots. So, I made some phone calls, check some figures on the Internet, spoke with local business people, research for other issues, and decided to start a new Hispanic periodical for the Central New York area.
Hi; my name is Hugo Acosta, and I am the founder, owner, and Publisher of the CNY Latino newspaper. I was born in Venezuela, and migrated to USA in the early 1980s. In 1992, I started a local Internet Consulting business called H.A. Technical Services, which I sold when I began my publishing venture with CNY Latino. Now I want to provide to the local Hispanic community, a new communication alternative not only to voice their opinions and concerns, but also to read about them.
I have currently a staff of paid consultants, free-lancers, contributors, and volunteers, that are all trying very hard to put together the content and production of the paper, we had our very first issue on Tuesday, February 3rd. 2004 I have also received generous contributions from local organizations and dedicated individuals that are always interested to assist and help in projects related to this ethnic group.
However, we need more help..! Therefore, if you know of anybody (including yourself) that would like to participate, contribute, or somehow be part of this Hispanic project, please let us know... go to our "Help Us" section to see the specifics we currently have a need for, or contact us directly for more detail information.
