I believe public service is an honorable calling and officeholders should be held to the highest standards of openness and honesty. In every position of responsibility I have held, I have worked hard to provide the people the quality local government they expect and deserve.

A fifth-generation Oklahoman and lifelong resident of Cleveland County, Darry is recognized as one of the most accomplished county commissioners in the state and nation.

He joined the Norman police force in 1989 and rose to the rank of Captain, receiving numerous commendations along the way.

Stacy was appointed to serve on the Governor’s Safe School Commission in 2014. He was also reappointed by the governor to the Oklahoma 9-1-1 Management Authority Board in 2018. Stacy is currently a reserve deputy with the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office.
Stacy also served as President of the Norman Public Schools Board of Education in the years preceding his election as county commissioner.
A 1985 graduate of Norman High School, Stacy obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree in political science from the University of Oklahoma and a Master of Arts in Criminal Justice Management from the University of Central Oklahoma. He is also a graduate of the FBI National Academy and DEA’s Drug Unit Commander Academy in Quantico, Virginia.
Stacy has been active in Cleveland County for more than 35 years. A graduate of both Leadership Norman and Leadership Moore, he has volunteered and been involved in numerous organizations and projects including PTA, Juvenile Services, Women’s Shelter, United Way, Salvation Army, Boy Scouts of America, Royal Ambassadors and Independent Living Services for Norman Youth. Stacy is a member of the Norman Rotary Club and a Paul Harris Fellow recipient. He is currently serving on the Rotary Club’s Executive Committee and is a past chairman of the Rotary Back the Blue Committee.

Darry and his wife, Tasha, have been married 26 years and live in east Norman. They are members of Bethel Baptist Church where Darry serves as deacon. The couple has two grown sons: Heath, currently serving in the U.S. Army and his wife, Courtney, who is serving in the U.S. Navy; and Karson is a senior at the University of Arkansas studying pre-med.
Shortly after he took office in January, 2013, Darry Stacy clearly saw that his first responder training included very transferrable skills to the Office of County Commissioner as the county was still recovering from the August 2012 wildfires when tornadoes hit in two Cleveland County communities — east Norman / Little Axe and Moore — on May 19 and May 20, 2013, respectively. He immediately took control of response and long term recovery of the community working in partnership with local, State, and Federal agencies.
