Re “Unlikely candidate building his image” (Page A1, Dec. 9): Former financier Neel Kashkari may be nice, but does he imagine that people in this region will have anything but distrust for anyone associated with Goldman Sachs, the U.S. Treasury and the $700 billion bank bailout known as the Troubled Assets Relief Program? This region has been in a horrible slump for much of the last five years, as a result of Wall Street's shenanigans, and Kashkari seems like a Wall Street high roller. When a candidate has real accomplishments, along with a vision and background we can respect, then maybe we'll take him seriously. Kashkari? Not so much.
