Lottery winner gets fired

2008-07-31 07:31
New York - A New York City doorman who kept his day job at an exclusive Park Avenue apartment building after winning a five million dollar lottery has been shown the door.

Kate Ferranti, a spokesperson for the union representing apartment building workers, said Richie Randazzo notified the union's grievance centre on Tuesday that he had been fired.

The building management company, Brown Harris Stevens, did not immediately return a call for comment.

Randozzo's father said on Wednesday that the letter did not specify the reason for Randozza's discharge. He declined to give his name and said his son was not home.

Randazzo made $40 000 a year as a doorman. He began taking in another $65 000 every three months after hitting the jackpot on May 2.
