Powerball Winners Claim $254M Jackpot In Connecticut

By Pat Eaton-Robb, Associated Press

ROCKY HILL, Conn. (AP) — Three Connecticut men who work at a startup asset management firm have claimed a $254 million Powerball jackpot.

Gregg Skidmore, Brandon Lacoff and Tim Davidson revealed themselves as the winners Monday at the Connecticut Lottery headquarters. The three are from the Greenwich area and are taking the after-tax lump sum of nearly $104 million in cash. They say a significant portion will go to charity.

Davidson bought the $1 quick pick ticket for the Nov. 2 drawing at the Shippan Point Getty station in Stamford. The winning numbers were 12-14-34-39-46, Powerball 36.

Skidmore says: “It feels good.”

The jackpot was the largest ever won in Connecticut and the 12th biggest in Powerball history.

The three men work as asset managers at a small firm called Bell Asset Management.

    The article reads…”The three men work as asset managers at a small firm called Bell Asset Management.”

    It should read “worked”….past tense.
