    She also was charged with not paying her Barberton taxes in 2008. Barberton Municipal Court
    Information on criminal case number 0801842. Thank you concerned citizen for the info!! If you look on the Barberton Municipal court search, she has 6 pending civil cases where she is being sued for non-payment.
    i agree. If she can’t manage her finances at home why would i vote for her either?

    Debevec is head of the finance comm and I know she is the one who was a sound ‘no’ vote on the mayor’s request for a raise, esp after the mayor declared a city monetary emergency laying off first responders, forcing concessions and cuts, laying off employees and threatening to close the jail! I don’t think her personal finances have anything to do with her as a candidate AND I think the fact that judge himself or him directing someone to push this dirty political play says a lot about his character and abilities. It’s a NO vote on Judge in our household and we officially have 5 voters now. My family is supporting Carla for Mayor! VOTE DEBEVEC 2019

    It’s a matter of public record. She’s running for a public office with financial responsibility. How someone handles their personal finances has some bearing on how they will handle it while in office.
    I am not Bill and I don’t know him.

    very very true owes me from back about 20 years ago

  13. Sounds like we already have to play dirty Billy, lol. Lest us not forget your “planning” director couldn’t plan mutliple buisnesses he tried to run. Don’t get us started over here with you and your secrets little billy. I don’t even give a crap about Carla just hate you enough to see it like it is. I know more then you would think about you and your friends you’ve surrounded yourself with.

    We need a Republican Mayor not another Hillary canidate

  15. Barberton Strong on June 22, 2019 at 2:25 pm

    Let’s not forget that a mere two months after the mayor laid off non-union city workers AND our firefighters AND threatened to shut down the jail because the city “didn’t have any money” he directed his safety director to ask council for a pay raise. The firefighters called his bluff, hiring a forensic accountant to show sufficient money available and lay-offs not necessary. Debevec called his bluff again and led the charge on a resounding ‘NO’ vote on the mayor’s pay increase.

  16. Wondering on June 21, 2019 at 6:38 pm

    Doesn’t she control the finance committee now? wth?

  17. Barberton Strong on June 21, 2019 at 3:54 pm

    Really???? What piece of vindictive trash publishes something like this? Sounds like and smells like a typical play right out of Judge’s play book. Sounds like Billy is running scared.

    Carla Debevec has multiple civil cases where she is being sued by Target, Chase, etc.. for non-payment of bills.
    If she can’t manage her own household finances, why in the world would we elect her to manage a city?
    search here for yourself to see.
