The City That Moves Mountains

City of Pikeville Commission


Patrick McNamee

I am a graduate of Pikeville High School and Eastern Kentucky University.  I have worked for the Kinzer family since 1993.  My wife, Nicole, is also a graduate of Pikeville High School. We have two sons, Jay and Henry, who attend Pikeville Elementary School.  We have lived most of our lives in the Pikeville area and have been amazed at the progress that has happened in our lifetimes.

I’m looking forward to this opportunity!


Bob Shurtleff

As a newly elected Pikeville City Commissioner, I would like to say thank you to everyone who had confidence to put me in this position. My wife, Kathy, and I are both life-long residents of Pikeville and graduates of Pikeville High School. We moved back here after attending the University of Kentucky and raised our three sons-Robert, Ryan and Ross.

I have seen the growth of mining come and go as well as population centers shift over the years. I look forward to keeping Pikeville on the progressive path that the prior commission has placed us on. There are so many good things going on here with UPike, Pikeville Medical Center, Marion’s Branch Industrial Park and the Dueling Barrels which is  set to open later in the spring.

For the past 31 years I have been employed with Kentucky Power Company, which has allowed me to learn this county and the surrounding area in a unique way. My grandfather began Shurtleff’s Laundry here in 1921. My wife’s late father Robert F. Linton saw the potential of Pikeville in 1965 when he moved his family from Louisville to begin an accounting firm.

My goal is to continue the potential for businesses  that has been here for so long and hopefully for many years to come.

Again, thank you for the opportunity to serve our very unique community as well as my home town!


Steve Hartsock

I am a life long resident of Pikeville, Kentucky where I attended Pikeville High School.  I would like to take this opportunity  to thank everyone for giving me the chance to serve the citizens of Pikeville.

I look forward to working with the mayor, city manager, and the other commissioners in making Pikeville a great place to live and work.


Kim May-Downey

I am truly humbled with this opportunity to serve the people in this town that “grew” me.  My family have been Pikeville residents for many generations. My husband, Roy, and I moved back to my hometown after we completed law school in 1990.  Our two daughters, Rachel and Katie, are both Pikeville High School graduates.

Our family has been loved, supported and encouraged by this community during Roy’s military deployments and Katie’s illnesses. It is a privilege to be able to give back to this city we love and call home.

The progress of Pikeville in my lifetime is nothing short of phenomenal. This growth continues to be possible, even in difficult economic times, because of the willingness of its’ people to work together for good. It is my desire to work with the Mayor and my fellow Commissioners for our community’s well-being and future prosperity.
