DETROIT – The former manager of the City of Taylor’s Community Development and former Treasurer of Mayor Richard Sollars’ campaign fund, pleaded guilty today to conspiring to commit bribery with Richard Sollars, Shady Awad, real estate developer, and Hadir Altoon, real estate developer and owner of Dominick’s Market, Acting United States Attorney Saima S. Mohsin announced today.

Mohsin was joined in the announcement by Timothy Waters, Special Agent in Charge of the Michigan Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Pleading guilty was Jeffrey Baum, 46, of Allen Park.

During his guilty plea hearing, Baum admitted accepting thousands of dollars in cash bribe payments for himself and over $40,000 in cash payments to Sollars in connection with the City of Taylor’s Right of First Refusal (“ROFR”) Program. The ROFR Program is designed to allow Taylor to acquire tax-foreclosed properties from Wayne County for redevelopment. According to court records, between 2017 and 2019, Baum helped Sollars steal money from Sollars’ campaign by giving Sollars blank campaign checks, bearing his signature as the treasurer of the campaign fund, so that Altoon, with Baum’s assistance on occasions, could prepare false and inflated invoices for catering services that were never rendered, were prepared in amounts higher than the actual amount for the catering services provided, and/or were for catering services for which Altoon had already been paid by the City of Taylor.
