Good place to retire — if you’re rich

June 23, 2012
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

To the editor:

This is about your story regarding Forbes' cities - Cape Coral among 25 best places to retire.

Don't think so.

Perhaps if you are rich and you don't mind paying high water rates, paying high sewer and water assessments, paying for a $50 million police station that is half empty.

And then paying for high salaries of the police and city staff that are above $80,000 a year for doing what they do best - finding ways for the taxpayers to pay more. An example - look at your phone and cable bill we pay the city for that along with other charges.

Also a city council that would spend $13 million buying land instead of lowering our water rates, more Cape city waste.

Most people I speak to can't wait to sell their homes and move. The only thing keeping them here is they are under water on the mortgage or the prices are too low to sell; they can't even break even. This is not even close to being the best place to live with the people we have in power.
