I know Mike well and I cant believe some of these post. I also own rental property throughout Huntington and I know how difficult having these types of tenants can be. Mike has only owned that building for a little over a year and has been trying to clean it up. That building has had a long history with these types of tenants. My guess is that if he bought it and kicked every one out on the street then you would be posting comments about that as well. For you to make comments about Mikes faith, family, motives or to suggest you would protest outside of his church is ridicules. Protest what exactly? The good news is that Mike will clean up and fix that building and I will do everything I can to help him. But the bad news for you is that you cant fix stupid.

I would also like to add that since you are calling Mike 2 faced and clearly you know him because you know his church, wife's name ect. Why don't you not be 2 faced and tell us who you are? I bet you are the type that starts a thread like this destroying someone's character then walks to his office and shakes his hand the next day.

No John, I do not know him nor do I do business with him. He did love to lay on the charm and political BS when he was running for House of Delegates and as for owning the building for around a year...try two.

Sorry, your buddy Mike put on the show over the last few years and now his little facade is crumbling.

As for protesting at his church, I have absolutely no intent of doing that because, like you said, what will it accomplish? Obviously he has them fooled. Besides, why create problems for innocent people? WSAZ and other media are shedding far more light on Mr. Ankrom than a few folks with signs ever would.

What will get something accomplished is what some are already doing. Researching the property deeds all over Cabell County to find other rental properties owned or managed by him. We aren't fussing about faded paint or torn carpets here. That building is in horrible shape and there is absolutely no excuse for it. Just watch and see what happens in the coming weeks. There is more than one building and they are already looking into it.

Wow, a successfull Christian businessman who owns many properties is a target for envious liberals. If you hate this man so much, why don't you show up to Lewis Memorial Baptist Church this Sunday. Ask where his class that he teaches meets, and ask him why he's a slumlord. Oh, because you are a cowardess liberal that thinks all sucessful businessmen are crooks. Last time I looked, that was a nice building on the outside. Not sure what goes on as far as ppl who pay rent; however, did you ever think that the pimps, whores, druggies, dealers might be the problem? Nope, it's the guy who builds the building and rents to low-income ppl. But wait, I thought liberals wanted to give low-income families a place to live, and that drugs and prostitution should be legalized and taxed. Sounds like the hard working rich businessman isn't to blame afterall. People are accountable for their own actions. Welcome to conservatism.
Just imagine how weffective you could be if you were educated about this type of situation instead of puking up more generic conservative talking points.

You have some strong opinions about someone you have never met or done business with. 2 faced, POS and sarcastically repeating that he is a Christian family man. You have even brought his wife into the threads. Why? The truth is his wife among others became involved with that group from meeting people living in that building when Mike purchased it. They have helped a lot of people and not for political popularity. I know this because I remember thinking they were crazy for trying to help some of those tenants. It seems no matter what someone's true character or intentions there is always someone out to attack there efforts. I am just curious, what is your motive for it?

The people living in those apartments chose to live there. No one forced them and certainly they could have moved out at any time if conditions were so deplorable. Not everyone can afford first class housing and atleast they had a roof over their heads. Perhaps you would prefer no one to own the buildings and let them sit empty instead of providing shelter. I'm sure most of the people complaining on here about "slumlords" have never made a significant contribution to better the Huntington community, financialIy or socially. I known both Mike and his wife for years. I do not go to church with them yet I have always known them to be friendly, kind people that love their children and go out of their way to help others.

So, applying your logic then drug dealers are innocent because they are just selling a product to people that choose to use them.

Clients of corrupt stock or securities brokers are guilty because they wanted a quick buck, not because someone didn't tell the truth.

Dare I even mention victims of rape...?

You sir, are an idiot.

Oh, and learn how to properly spell "financialIy," it is financially. Or maybe you are his genius accountant.

Congrats to therealista for finding a good apartment owned by Mike Ankrom.

Oh, Mike has been going into full campaign mode ever since the bust down on 6th Avenue - that really hurt him. He is running around, acting all friendly, and treating people so nice. He knows that most people won't remember the jerk he has been for the last 2 years, they will just remember the most recent spin.

Watch out folks, Mike Ankrom is indeed a politician. We don't need more self-serving, egotistical, power-hungry idiots in Charleston; there are enough of them there now.

Yeah, Mike used to take really good care of me too and then I said I wouldn't swallow anymore. He raised my rent and stopped fixing stuff. My advice, keep swallowing and he'll take good care of you.
