Meet Pampa’s City Manager


Shane Stokes was born and raised in Pampa, Texas and began his career in municipal government in 1993 as the Recreation Superintendent for the City of Pampa.  Stokes has held several positions with the City, most recently, as the Director of Community Services.  After just over 15 years of service, Stokes took over as the Assistant City Manager in January of 2009 then was named City Manager in February of 2015.  “I have always loved Pampa and taking this position seemed to be the next natural step in serving the citizens of my home town.”

Stokes graduated from West Texas A&M University in 1993, receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology.  “I came to work for the City part-time in 1993, with the intent of working that summer and then going on to graduate school.  I loved the work so much, that I have stayed for fifteen years.”  Stokes holds the certification as Aquatic Facility Operator through the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA) and also serves as a Board Member for the Pampa Optimist Youth Club, as well as, the Secretary/Treasurer for the Pampa Umpire’s Association.

Shane and his wife Sandee have three children, Kendall Murray of Arlington, Texas, McKinlee Stokes and Brandon Stokes of Pampa.  The family enjoys sports of all kinds and being outdoors.  Sandee works for the Pampa Independent School District as a secretary at the Pampa High School.  The Stokes family are members of Trinity Fellowship Church.
