If you drive around Huntington, odds are you've seen the signs up everywhere for "Mike Ankrom, House of Delegates". He claims that his "faith guides his decisions" and that he came from a family that taught him that he need to "work hard". He owns many apartments scattered in Huntington and claims that these properties are "growing and successful".

I live in one of these building he owns. And if his politics are anything like his skills of being a landlord, he'd be as useful to this county as a hole in the head. Before he purchased my building, it was a pretty decent place to live. Then he allowed people to live in the building that are drunks, drug addicts and abusers. He had been made aware several times of the problems in the building and didn't do anything about it. There are dirty needles laying out back. The trash in the dumpster became a health hazard and the county eventually had to fine him to get him to take some action. He never made an attempt to fix anything and he never returned calls. I hear similar stories from other properties he owns. He sold our building and he told one of the people living in the building to "not tell us". He literally packed up his election sign out front and hit the road without a word, not even a call to let me know. I have no clue who my landlord is right now. You tell me how someone like this would be good for this county? He can't even take care of a building, much less a city. He's a slumlord. Good christian my ass. Shame on you, Mike.

Mike Ankrom, Candidate, christian, and SLUMLORD OWNER of 625 6th Avenue. His property is being featured on WSAZ www.wsaz.com as an apartment building ready to fall down and housing drug dealers and prostitutes.

Good thing he and his christian wife are involved in getting women off the streets, AWAY FROM DRUGS, and AWAY FROM PROSTITUTION! Yeah, they have their "church" fooled into thinking they are such great people.

He probably probably takes the rent in "trade"

Nah, he would still probably owe the girl $50 or so on each rent payment.

He probably doesn't have anything to do with the building other than making sure he's not losing money. Gasp! Thankfully, it's probably full of section 8 HUD housing, so the govt will pay for the non-working/criminals of society.

Section 8 doesn't allow that crap. They send out inspectors and reinspect if the initial problem is not corrected. If its not fixed the slumlord doesn't get paid

You really believe that crap? There's like 500 houses on the list. As long as there's a window that opens in each bedroom, that check gets sent. Thanks Obama!

Obama is just a puppet for a more sinister group of old white men with no balls.

Ha. Like the old white men that don't have the balls to confront their target of a topix smear? When you put someone's name out there, be prepared to suffer the cold reality of someone calling you on the carpet. This is not fair to him or his family. I don't even know the man, but feel that if I were a target of topix trash, I would hope someone would state the truth and defend a decent man.

Do yourself and others a favor there Concerned Tenant.

Before you leave, photograph and video every inch of your property.

Report him to every possible authority that will listen.

While reporting Mr. Holier than Though to the HUD people, get some housing assistance from them so that you and your family can find a safe, clean place to live.

Best wishes to you and your family.
