FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — A clean-cut man who showed up at a Fresno homeless shelter last week looked out of place. And now the people there know why.
Republican millionaire Neel Kashkari, a 41-year-old candidate for governor of California, said Thursday that he rode a bus from Los Angeles to Fresno with $40 to spend during a week looking for a job. He said wanted to refute Gov. Jerry Brown's claims the state is making a comeback.
Kashkari says he found no work, and his mission turned to finding his next meal, which took him to the shelter.
Gabriela McNiel, a spokeswoman for Poverello House, says she and her colleagues recalled seeing a new face there.
She says he was clean and asked for a job, which is something they don't normally get asked.
