Jimmy Stathatos, Flower Mound’s town manager, will be recognized for 25 years in local government service.

Stathatos will receive a 25-Year Service Award from the International City/County Management Association next month at a Celebration of Service event in Nashville, Tennessee.

Stathatos has been working for local governments since 1994, when he began work as a purchasing analyst for the city of College Station while attending Texas A&M University. He then worked as a management intern at the city of Euless and assistant to the city manager in Ennis before becoming the city manager for Roanoke. He served there for about 15 years before becoming Flower Mound’s town manager in 2013.

Stathatos said he became interested in working in local government was that he wanted “to make a difference.”

“The local level, I think, is by far the most impactful level of government,” he said. “You see the people you serve daily. When we put in a new park, or fix a road, or open a new fire station — things that enhance people’s quality of life — it’s really gratifying.”

    Jimmy’s right about the local level being more closely related to the average citizen’s needs than the state and local governments. Sadly, very few people pay attention to their town councils, which illustrates why the voting percentages in local elections is pathetic compared to state and federal plebiscites. The way a city or town is managed has a major impact on our safety, our personal finances and our overall lifestyle. When I think about our marvelous little burg, with its reputation as the “Number one safest city in Texas,” along with the numerous other advantages, I’m grateful for the experience and prudence displayed by our Town Manager and his magnificent staff.
