Irene Wrenner has worked as a "check-and-balance" on local government for 17 years.  Her passion is paying attention to what happens in hallowed halls ― comparing and contrasting what's said vs what's done, critically thinking, digesting and documenting ― to help residents comprehend the sometimes baffling behavior of paid staff and elected officials. 

Ken Signorello is an 18-year rural Essex resident, who occasionly writes and produces media.  

While Wrenner is serving in the State Senate, Heidi Clark, pictured here, has taken the helm. Welcome to The Essex Retorter! Click to read our Mission Statement.
