Bitsy Perlman

About Bitsy:
I moved to Brookline in 2009 to attend school. I am a renter who has lived in several different Brookline neighborhoods; I’ve been in Brookline Village since 2019. Bicycling has been my primary mode of transportation for over 15 years. My perspective on Brookline is from the point of view of a cyclist, walker, and T rider.

I graduated from BU with an Economics PhD in 2016. For work, I study science and innovation policy. Outside of work, I think about transportation policy and am part of an urban planning book club. I’ve attended Temple Sinai for over a decade.

My priorities as a Town Meeting Member include:
