Mayor Sam Liccardo serves in his second term as 65th Mayor of San Jose. Since taking office in 2015, he has worked diligently to build a safer, stronger, and more sustainable city. Under Mayor Liccardo's leadership and with the support of voters, the City partnered with the Open Space Authority and Peninsula Open Space Trust to protect nearly 1,000 acres in Coyote Valley to make San Jose more resilient against droughts, floods, and wildfires, to protect key wildlife corridors, and to provide trails and open space for future generations to enjoy.
