Who is Deb DeBacker?

There's nothing like controversy to drive supporters to hide their associations.

In today's Detroit Free Press, an article appeared describing our Mayor as, once again, "controversial."

At the end of the article, an accountant, Debbie DeBacker, was quoted in support of the Mayor, saying Daniels is "doing exactly what she was elected to do. It's even what supporters hope will be a model for the state and the nation."

You could leave the article with the impression that Ms. DeBacker is simply a private citizen of Troy, happy with our Mayor and the controversy.

But not so fast. Ms. DeBacker is so much more than a private citizen in our fair city.

If you search the Oakland County election records, you'll find Ms. DeBacker's is a political operative whose fingerprints are all over our Mayor Daniels run for office.

First, you'll learn that Ms. DeBacker is a Republican Precinct Delegate, and has been since August 2010. [PDF, See page 32 of 33]. As a delegate, Ms. DeBacker campaigned against the millage to save the library.

Next, you'll learn Ms. DeBacker donated $500.00 the Troy Voter Guide, whose paperwork demonstrates that they supported Daniels, Henderson, Tietz, and Kempen in the last election. (Note that Ms. DeBacker is identified as a "housewife" and not an "accountant" for the purposes of the donation.)

The records further reveal that Ms. DeBacker is the creator and treasurer of Mothers Against Drugs in Troy, who, last year, funded a smear campaign against Neil Yashisnsky.

Finally, the records reveal that Ms. DeBacker is the Treasurer for Troy Citizens United, the political action committee behind the our Mayor and her run for office.

So the next time you see the name Ms. DeBacker in public, don't think of her as an "accountant" or "housewife." Think of her as one of the people responsible for attacking the library, working against responsible public leadership, and creating the disaster that is Mayor Janice Daniels.

UPDATE: An anonymous commenter pointed out some of Ms. DeBacker's more interesting opinions. First, Ms. DeBacker thinks your children should only read books published before 1965. Second, Ms. DeBacker thinks that the International Baccalaureate, a program designed to help students "develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world" is a Anti-American program, dedicated to undermining the "right to bear arms, limited government, natural law and most important, [and] God given inalienable rights."

  1. I think we should all start contacting her via facebook and asking when a meeting of Mother's Against Drugs in Troy is meeting. How heartless can someone be?

  2. I got banned from the TCU facebook page for wanting to confirm that the admin of the page is Deb DeBacker. Guess there's my answer.

    1. Obviously your intentions were not the most honest.

  3. One could probably write a 50-page research paper on the exploits of culture warrior Deb DeBacker. Just Google her name for a taste. She apparently believes that the International Baccalaureate curriculum for high school students is part of an effort to usher in a world government. She also finds unspeakable horrors in children's books, warning parents to choose books written before 1965.

    In addition to the groups mentioned above, you'll also find that she was also fronted a group called "Troy Citizens United Against Parkland Giveaways". She has also claimed to be chair of the "Oakland County Republican Assembly", whatever that is...

  4. Thank you for this information. I see so many names and can now put them together and know where they stand. This is the kind of truth that needs to be brought to light. Politics at this level is such an education to me. I never realized how devious people could be, blame it on my niavete.

    1. Kathy. If you are looking for some light, dig deeper into the library "closing". The real issue was not about keeping the library, it was about spending $5 million on a transit center.

    2. Hey Tom, How are ya? Hey, are you still spreading this bit of fiction? I don't know what worries me more, that you might still think that $5 million of city money was going toward the transit center, or that you are all going to start telling that falsehood again.
      Tom-it's not true. It's not true. It's not true.

  5. I have a hard time believing she's an accountant. She's made so many mistakes on her state filings on campaign finance for TCU!

  6. Anonymous 2:06, I actually looked it up. She is registered with the state as a CPA. But that doesn't mean she's a good CPA.

    1. Well how come Howrylak is saying she's not "certified?"
      Of course, at least she has held a job, something I don't believe he ever has.
      What a pair!!!!!

  7. DeBacker is one of those nuts who thinks the world happens like television shows depicted in the 1950's. In her delusionary brain, that is how life happens. She also tries to force feed her beliefs to everyone else.

  8. I say...go DeBacker! Keep backing our mayor and councilman Henderson along with the other wing-nuts these two have in their peanut gallery. The more idiots they surround themsevles with...the easier it will be to oust them.

  9. Well I tried to read her "women in combat" piece, but my computer software is restricting it as violence/hate/racism. Why am I not surprised?
