Kathy Kattenburg, that is — that’s me. I created Liberty Street in April 2004 and it has become a consuming passion. In case anyone is wondering, I got the idea for the name of the blog from a street that was near my house when I lived in Bloomfield, NJ. It’s not a very long street, but it’s well-known in the town, and it has the added draw of going through the Bloomfield College campus and the very picture-postcard town green opposite the campus. Now that I live in next-door Belleville, Liberty Street is still nearby — but it’s not a block away anymore. It still is descriptive of what I want the blog to be about, though, so Liberty Street it shall remain.
In addition to liberal politics, my co-blogger Chief and I share a love for animals. I have two cats who are related to each other (mom cat and daughter cat). I also have a 19-year-old daughter who attends Barnard College.
