The FBA publishes a monthly newspaper called The Informed Constituent®. Currently, only the Capital District of New York edition is available in print. This includes the counties of Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, and Warren. However, this is just our prototype of what we will be franchising across the nation. We have already received interest in starting editions of TIC in Ithaca, New York and Houston, Texas. If you are interested in having your area represented, write to us at Ray.Feliciano@fourthbranchofamerica.com!
