Mayor Sam Liccardo's Initiatives


Safety
Safety

“We will renew San Jose by making our city safer, and that starts with restoring our depleted police department. However, restoring public safety in San José will require far more than merely adding officers to our ranks - we’ll also need to be smarter, more efficient and more innovative.”

Housing

"San Jose faces an affordable housing crisis, that is felt acutely by the over 4,000 residents who find themselves homeless each night and those thousands more who are working multiple jobs just to pay rent. We must do more, using whatever innovative methods we can, to address the need to create more affordable housing options in our community."

Transportation

             “We must build a transportation system worthy of America’s 10th largest city. By creating a world-class transit network, re-designing our streetscapes, reversing decades of deterioration in our road, and by finishing — once and for all — BART to San Jose, we will retrofit our city into a world-class transportation hub for our residents and businesses alike.”

Sustainability 

“Cities across the globe are stepping up to confront climate change and other environmental challenges with the kind of pragmatic, innovative leadership too often missing in the national and international dialogue. Here in San José, we appreciate the grave cost of inaction and continue to embrace the opportunity to build a more sustainable community."

-Mayor Sam Liccardo

Job Growth & Economic Opportunities

“Most major cities are job centers; in contrast, San José has long served as the bedroom community for the rest of the Valley. By focusing on attracting and retaining businesses in San José, we can grow the revenues and jobs that will improve services, safety and quality of life for our residents.”

-Mayor Sam Liccardo
