Senator Jim Beall

State Senator Jim Beall was born and raised in San Jose. We are proud to claim him as an alumnus of our very own San Jose State University Department of Political Science. In four decades of public service, first as a San Jose City Councilman, then as a Santa Clara County Supervisor and a member of the State Assembly, and finally as a state senator, Beall has left his mark across Silicon Valley and beyond. During his 14 years on the San Jose City Council, he lobbied commissioners to select the extension of the Bay Area Rapid Transit System to San Jose as a high priority project. Valley Transportation Authority and BART officials broke ground on the extension in 2012. Beal brings a lifetime of experience in and understanding of transportation, housing and government reform to the State Senate.
