Why rent when you can own?

Dear Editor:So, Phil Overeynder and his wife can enjoy retiring in the house the city has provided to them for the last 12 years. Yes, they pay rent – about what is charged for a studio apartment in town. With that kind of deal, why in the world would they try to move up?I’m sure that Phil is a valuable asset to the city, and water department. My question is this: How many times as a qualified employee did Phil enter lotteries to purchase a deed-restricted home? Or was he just happy to rent from the city and bring in around $10,000 a month? Thank you.Frank SpoffordAspen
