Charlottesville, VA – The Free Enterprise Forum and the Fluco Blog today announced a partnership to share news content. Under the agreement, articles written by Fluco Blog founder Bryan Rothamel will appear on the Free Enterprise Forum Blog and in their other internet publications.
“There is a need for timely local news in Fluvanna County,” Rothamel said, “With their presence at local government meetings; the Free Enterprise Forum has improved the understanding of the issues.”
In 2009, Rothamel started Fluco Blog as a side project. Fluco Blog grew to the most read news website in Fluvanna County. After two years, Rothamel took a break. The Fluco Blog returned on November 15, 2012.
“Bryan’s knowledge and understanding of Fluvanna issues is without peer in local media,” said Free Enterprise Forum President Neil Williamson. “While the organization will take positions on Fluvanna policy issues, Bryan will continue to use his journalistic skill to bring all sides of the story to the public” Williamson concluded.
The Free Enterprise Forum, now celebrating its first decade of service, is a privately funded, nonprofit, nonpartisan, public policy organization focused on local government in Central Virginia. Their coverage of Fluvanna, Louisa and Greene is funded by a grant from the Charlottesville Area Association of REALTORS®.
