Since 2007, Councilmember Sam Liccardo has provided independent and innovative leadership in San José’s Downtown and surrounding neighborhoods.
Sam and wife, Jessica Garcia-Kohl, live in the same Downtown neighborhoods where three generations of his family thrived. After attending Bellarmine, Sam obtained a bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University, a J.D. from Harvard Law School, and a Master’s degree in public policy from Harvard.
Prior to his 2006 election to the City Council, Sam spent seven years as a criminal prosecutor, protecting child victims of sexual assault and exploitation at the District Attorney’s Office. He served on the boards of several affordable housing organizations, tutored homeless children, and worked for passage of the 2000 BART-to-San José measure.
