DEB CORBIN arrived in Pensacola from Washington, D.C., a little more than five years ago. Deb jumped into local issues shortly after arriving here. Former Mayor Ashton Hayward asked her to serve on the selection committee for the Pensacola International Airport advertising concession and subsequently appointed her as a city representative on the ECAT Advisory Committee. She has also volunteered with Wreaths across America at Barrancas Cemetery. Deb was born in Washington, D.C., and grew up in Phoenix, Arizona. After college, she worked as National Event and Education Director for the Amalgamated Transit Union and as National Director of Member Benefits for the American Federation of Teachers. She also worked on two Presidential campaigns representing her trade unions. Her volunteer work in D.C. included stints as president of the board of the National Capital YMCA and co-chair of Life Circle Alliances “Kudos for Caregivers.” Campaigning comes naturally as Deb grew up in Arizona politics. “Dad ran for district attorney for Maricopa County when I was 12. I remember going door to door asking folks to support Bob Corbin. He went on to become Arizona’s attorney general and served three terms. Dad was the first AG ever to use RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) against organized crime.” Deb lives in Pensacola with her husband and is a dog mom to a German shepherd and rottweiler.
