Thomas B. Inglis was the first mayor of Monte Sereno and served from 1957–1967.  He and his wife, Kathryn, lived in Monte Sereno since 1951.  To prevent Monte Sereno from being annexed to Los Gatos and to prevent intensive development, Inglis successfully fought to incorporate Monte Sereno as a city.
