Mayor Ian Oglesby


(831) 899-6700


First taking the office of mayor in 2018, Ian Oglesby was reelected in 2020 and again (uncontested) in 2022. The longtime Seaside resident previously served eight years on the council.

“I’m running for reelection to keep the city moving forward and get things done,” Oglesby told KSBW before the 2020 election. He touted the council’s successes, saying, “The Costco gas station and American Tires is coming forward. Campus Town is moving forward, and then a lot of other small businesses throughout the community were able to open up this year even though during the COVID crisis.”

Twitter bio: “Mayor of #SeasideCA, husband, father, Papa, and army veteran. Fighting for the people focused on strengthening our middle class & creating jobs. #seasidefirst”

Notable quote: When talking about the Seaside Basin, Oglesby said: "My thing is not about the water. It’s about the quality of life for those residents [impacted by new homes]." (Source: Monterey County Weekly)
