Here's Why I'm Running
For Re-Election.

Three Years of Progress

in District 4

We've accomplished a lot in my first term as your Councilmember, but there's still so much more to do in District 4. The video above highlights some of the projects and causes my team and I have tackled, and some longterm issues we're still focused on.

Be sure to vote in the primary election March 5th, 2024.

Your contribution to my campaign will help us continue the great work we're doing for the people of District 4.

I Love District 4

The quaint, rustic marina of Alviso. The peaceful suburbs of Berryessa. The tech campuses and apartment communities of North San Jose...  District 4 is the most unique,  diverse, and important part of our great city. 



  A leader who listens. 

       Progress that works.

We've Gotten A Lot Done,

And We're Just Getting Started.

It has been a great honor for me to serve the residents of District 4 on San Jose City Council. I believe District 4 is the most interesting district in the City and I have focused on the needs of every neighborhood.


While I am proud of the accomplishments I have achieved for Alviso, Berryessa, and North San Jose, there is still more to do to improve the quality of life of my neighbors.


Therefore, I am excited to seek re-election in 2024. Please join me as I continue to put community over politics.

With deepest gratitude,

David Cohen



My parents were my advocates, ensuring that I would have a fair shot at success. They instilled in me a desire to make my community a better place. I spent 14 years serving the families and students of the Berryessa School District. There, I focused on creating relationships with local families and students, listening to the needs of our neighborhoods, and taking action to create opportunities for every student. Together, we safeguarded small class sizes, preserved music and science programs, and secured additional funding for our local schools. 

In 2020, I saw the need to bring that community-centered approach to the City Council. District 4 residents needed an advocate in City Hall. As a member of Council, my primary focus has been to be accessible to all the residents of the district. I have focused on the unique needs of District 4, including addressing long-neglected needs of Alviso, partnering with neighborhoods and schools in North San Jose and River Oaks, investing in parks, improving pedestrian safety, and holding community events. 

I have led the way on policies that matter to San Jose, such as building more affordable housing, addressing homelessness, keeping our community clean, and ensuring a clean and carbon-free future for our children.
