Office of Mayor Sam Liccardo

A Message from Sam: "We are San José"

"This is our moment to re-create San José’s future, to dream anew and stretch our imaginations around a new narrative, and a bold vision for our city – a future laden with opportunities for residents from every corner of our city.

We can provide a great civic gift to our children and grandchildren: a San José that establishes a new standard for public safety, environmental sustainability, civic innovation, and shared prosperity to which every other city will aspire.

We are San José -- and working together, we will create a San José that will be the model for the world."
