Luccisano first ran for the Montreal city council in December 1968, in elections held after the municipality of Saint-Michel was annexed to Montreal. The latter election took place against the backdrop of the FLQ crisis. Luccisano was re-elected in 1974, 1978, and 1982.
He sought election for a fifth term in 1986 and lost to Montreal Citizens" Movement candidate Frank Venneri.
Luccisano died of heart failure in October 2008, after a five-month struggle with lung disease.
