NEW YORK (AP) - New York City doorman Richie Randazzo had said
he wouldn't quit his day job after winning a $5 million lottery,
and he didn't. He got fired.
A spokesman for the union representing apartment building
workers says Randazzo notified the union's grievance center on
Tuesday that he had been shown the door.
The exclusive Park Avenue apartment building where Randazzo
worked is run by building management company Brown Harris Stevens.
The company did not immediately return a call.
Randazzo made $40,000 a year as a doorman. He began taking in
another $65,000 every three months after hitting the jackpot May 2.
Randozzo's father says his son got a letter that did not specify
the reason for his discharge. He declined to give his name and said
his son was not home.
