In an in-depth profile, Cleveland.com talked with Jeffrey Appelbaum about his contributions to many of Cuyahoga County's major development projects.
According the the article, since 2009, Appelbaum, along with affiliated companies Project Management Consultants and the Thompson Hine law firm, have won county contracts worth roughly $10 million, including a $1.27 million deal approved by the county this week. In exchange, the county gets legal services and a dedicated point-man to oversee construction, ideally ensuring it’s completed on-schedule and within budget.
Appelbaum’s backers say he’s a national leader in his field and provides the county with a wealth of expertise. Critics say blind loyalty to any contractor – even the best in the field – can backfire at taxpayer expense.
