Opinion: Email to Baruch College on October 10, 2023, about MetroCards for students receiving public assistance.

Loading

Greetings Baruch College, 

First and foremost, I always treat all parties involved in this situation (CUNY Edge/HRA/etc.) with the absolute utmost respect at all times. Treating people respectfully is more important than anything. I understand everyone is doing their best under the circumstances. 

I’ll survive regardless. 

In the past, full-time The City University of New York (CUNY) students on public assistance used to receive MetroCard money from the Human Resources Administration (HRA). 

For the past four years, I’ve always received MetroCard money every week from (HRA). 

If I’m correct, the public assistance students would receive the MetroCard money regardless if school was open or on break. 

Then the MetroCard money was only given when school was open. 

For some reason, last semester, the MetroCard money started a few weeks into the semester. 

It’s October 10, 2023, over a month into the semester, and I’m not receiving the MetroCard money from HRA. 

I’ve politely and respectfully asked Baruch College CUNY Edge about it, and they said they are waiting to hear from HRA. 

I’ve politely and respectfully asked the people at Benefits Access Centers (BAC) – HRA located at 109 E 16th St, New York, NY 10003, regarding the situation. 

They said they didn’t have any information. 

Did HRA cut off all CUNY public assistance students from the MetroCard money? 

Did HRA cut off all New York City public assistance full-time college students from MetroCards?

I’m guessing there are thousands of CUNY students who receive public assistance. 

After all these years, are they cutting the MetroCard money? 

Is there any way to find out if all CUNY public assistance students have been cut off from the MetroCard money? 

I’m trying to find out if everyone was cut off or just some students. 

I just had the idea while writing this note to contact other schools outside of CUNY to see if I can gather any information. 

I’m going to call/email New York City colleges outside of the CUNY system starting tonight and see if they have any information. 

Please advise. 

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: Email to the New York City Human Resources Administration about my August 2023 storage invoice.

Loading

I’m on public assistance or welfare.

HRA, the New York City welfare office, pays for me to have a storage room to keep my belongings.

Greetings HRA, 

Thank you for your amazing work for everyone in my financial situation. 

I just uploaded a perfectly clear copy of my August storage invoice into the Access HRA app. 

Today is July 10, 2023. 

If possible, I would like to be clear about something. 

Do I have to additionally bring a printed-out copy of the storage invoice into the HRA 16th St NYC office location for the storage invoice to be paid? 

Please advise. 

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: I suspect New York City law enforcement, including the NYPD, are threatening the people at the Human Resources Administration not to pay my storage invoice.

Loading

Greetings HRA,

People I know pay law enforcement to harass me constantly. It’s nothing new. I’m used to it. 

I always treat everyone at HRA 16th St with the utmost respect at all times. 

I never mention to anyone at HRA 16th St that people I know pay New York City law enforcement to sabotage every move I make at Baruch College, HRA, supermarkets, and everywhere else. 

Every month I upload a perfectly clear copy of my storage invoice into Access HRA. 

Every month my storage invoice doesn’t get paid. 

Then I have to go to HRA 16th St in person with the storage invoice, and then it gets paid. 

Again, I’m not saying a word to anyone at HRA 16th St about law enforcement sabotaging me. 

I suspect law enforcement is telling people at HRA not to pay the invoice. 

Yesterday morning I brought my storage invoice to HRA 16th St. 

I was as polite and respectful as humanly possible. 

I just looked at Access HRA, and there is no record that my storage invoice was brought in to HRA 16th St yesterday. 

So now what’s happening is I upload my storage invoice, and nothing happens. 

Then I go into HRA on 16th St, and nothing happens, so I have to keep going back to HRA 16th St over and over. 

Yesterday the people at HRA 16th St said that the “system was down” and they would upload my storage information after I left. 

It was never uploaded. 

So now I’m going to go back again today. 

I will continue to treat your staff as politely and respectfully as humanly possible. 

It’s not their fault that law enforcement is being paid to run around the city and threaten people to sabotage me at every place I go. 

If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. 

Thank you.

Opinion: Email to the New York City Human Resources Administration about how I suspect law enforcement might be threatening some of the HRA staff not to pay my storage bill on 5/19/2023.

Greetings Human Resources, 

First and foremost I always treat all your staff with the utmost respect at all times. 

No matter what. 

I hope I’m wrong but I suspect law enforcement had your staff run another scam on me the same way law enforcement runs one scam after the next on me at Baruch College CUNY and everywhere else. 

I uploaded my storage invoice to Access HRA. 

Then the storage company raised the price after sending the first invoice. 

I then uploaded the new invoice with the increased price to Access HRA. 

When the storage bill still didn’t get paid I then went in person to HRA 16 St NYC with the invoice from my storage company. 

The person at the counter at HRA 16th St NYC asked me to sign a document and that was it. 

The person at the counter at HRA 16th St NYC then gave me a receipt for my records. 

I’m looking at the document now on the Access HRA website and nothing is filled out. 

There is no price, no invoice, just a blank document with my signature and it says storage. 

I don’t take it personally. 

I will continue to treat your staff with the utmost respect at all times. 

I’ll go back to HRA 16 St in New York City on Monday and every day after until it gets worked out. 

Law enforcement will probably have me go back to HRA 16th St several more times so they can have drug addicts pretend they are handing me things, have teenage girls pretend I’m stalking them, and have other people blow drug smoke in my face every day I visit the HRA office. 

If you require any additional information from me please let me know. 

If law enforcement is threatening you not to pay for my storage bill I understand. 

New York City law enforcement does not have any oversight at all and it’s documented that they murder and attack innocent people. 

I suspect the number is a lot higher for what they get credit for although the number they get credit for murdering and abusing is a lot. 

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: Email to the New York City Human Resources Administration (HRA) about law enforcement (FBI, police) threatening their staff to sabotage my public assistance case.

Greetings HRA,

Personally, I think you’re doing a great job. 

I always treat everyone at HRA with the utmost respect at all times.

If you know how to look I’m currently suing The City University of New York. 

The case is called 

Mark Pine Vs The City University of New York. 

The whole case is about how rich people I know pay law enforcement to sabotage me at CUNY and harass me. 

I highly suspect law enforcement is sabotaging my case at HRA. 

I don’t blame anyone at HRA for allowing law enforcement to sabotage me or helping law enforcement sabotage me. 

I don’t have a criminal record. 

I don’t do anything illegal. 

The Manhattan District Attorney, the US Attorney for NYC, the NYPD, and the NYC FBI all blocked my number because if anyone helps me they are immediately fired if they are lucky. 

People I know pay a lot of money to the people in charge of New York City law enforcement to commit crimes.

For example, they like to punch women in the face, drug women, and attack women. 

New York City law enforcement can care less as long as they are being compensated. 

The other NYC government agencies are scared to death to upset law enforcement. 

Anyway, right now I suspect NYC law enforcement is threatening whoever is in charge of paying my storage not to pay it. 

I don’t take it personally. 

If someone at HRA doesn’t allow NYC law enforcement to run scams, NYC law enforcement could have them fired immediately in my opinion. 

Again I always treat everyone at HRA with the utmost respect at all times. 

I’m going to file a Notice of Claim with the NYC Comptroller this week. 

I will let the NYC Comptroller’s Office know that NYC law enforcement is threatening people at HRA not to pay my storage and see if I can get the courts involved. 

The only time I can get NYC law enforcement to follow any rules at all and be a little cautious when they are harassing and sabotaging me is when I get the courts involved. 

Thank you and have a great day.
