“I think people have made a lot of assumptions based on ‘I don’t like that,’ or ‘I do like that,’ and there aren’t enough people who know the whole picture.”

Ken Welch agrees that a mere dislike of the Lens isn’t a good enough alternative to change course. “There’s got to be some sort of solution, and that’s where I think we need some leadership to get us to that.”

Council chair Leslie Curran says Mayor Foster needs to be that man. “I think that’s what Lisa Wannemacher is doing, but I think we need to do on a broader scale.”

But is anyone capable of bringing the city together when it comes to the Pier?
