Opinion: Message to the Commissioner of HRA in New York City. October 7, 2021.

Greetings Steven Banks, Commissioner, Department of Social Services, 

First and foremost thank you for the help. HRA saved my life after people I grew up with paid NYC law enforcement to sabotage my web marketing clients. I have no criminal record. I don’t do anything illegal. I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I’m a full-time student at Baruch College (12 credits this semester). I wish the public heard about homeless people like me more often.

I always treat everyone at HRA with the utmost respect at all times. Your staff is as good as it gets. I hold you all in the highest regard. 

As I stated, I’m a full-time student at Baruch College. The CUNY Edge office and I sent all the paperwork to prove that I’m a full-time student. For some reason, my Access HRA account is showing that they want information about job searches. 

“You need to give us these documents. If you don’t give us these documents, you may not receive benefits. You can view SNAP examples or view Cash Assistance examples. Proof of Job search activities (FIA-1021b Declaration of Job Search Activities) Proof of Eligibility for SNAP again because ABAWD rules are met (or no longer need to be met).”

My access HRA account also says Next Recertification Due: June 2022

Previously, I worked for RF CUNY. I was notified that RF CUNY is canceled this semester for full-time students.

Please let me know what I need to do to meet my requirements. The best way to reach me is via email or if you email me a phone number I’ll call. 

Thank you again for the amazing support you provide for everyone who receives benefits from HRA including myself. 

Please advise. 

Thank you and have a great day. 

Ever upward,

Mark Pine

Email to the Nassau County District Attorney about people blowing weed smoke in my face on the New York City welfare line.

Greetings Nassau County District Attorney,

I’m at the Waverly Job Center 12 W 14th St, New York, NY 10011. This is the welfare office in New York City. 

Someone who probably works for the police just cut me in line and lit up a huge marijuana cigarette. He is smoking it in my face right now. 

I guess the police are doing this because I’m now on Nassau County Probation. The police probably want me to test positive for marijuana. Now I’m going to have to get tested for weed in my system every day to make sure it doesn’t show up. 

I’m at the welfare office to recertify my case. 

I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. I don’t have a criminal record. 

The police have people who work for them blow marijuana smoke in my face all the time when I’m trying to study. That is why I called you so many times to report I was being harassed before I was arrested. 

I called NYPD 911 and they are on the way now. 

I’ll get tested a bunch of times and hopefully, it doesn’t show up in my system.

If marijuana shows up in my system, I’ll immediately let everyone know. 

I’m also going to try and get a police report but I’m confident the NYPD officers won’t give me one. After they refuse to provide me with a police report I’ll contact NYPD Internal Affairs. I’m also going to send NYPD Internal Affairs a copy of this email. 

Thank you and have a great day.

Ever upward,

Email to the welfare office about an NYPD officer insulting me at The Waverly Job Center.

Greetings HRA, 

Update, the NYPD officer just started insulting me and I ignored the person. I politely asked the NYPD officer if they called my number? I said I was waiting upstairs and in the other room because the place is packed. 

The NYPD officer said, “Why did you have your headphones in?” and the officer hurled a few more insults at me. I ignored it and didn’t say a word. This is the exact treatment I’m used to. 

It’s not a big deal. I still treat everyone with the utmost respect at all times. Law enforcement can not ever miss one chance to harass me and try to get me to react negativly. 

New York law enforcement knows I’m never going to react negtivly so at this point they are looking to just get a negative look from me. That’s how desperate they are to sabotage me. That’s also how big of liars they are. I can only imagine how many innocent people have been locked up by New York law enforcement after seeing them in action.

I will continue to treat everyone at HRA with the utmost respect regardless of how negatively they treat me. Even the NYPD officer who was just hurling insults at me for absolutely no reason besides the fact that people I grew up with in New York pay New York law enforcement to run scams and sabotage people. They also pay New York law enforcement to allow them to commit crimes. It’s well documented. 

I have no criminal record. I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. I am a full time student at CUNY.

Thank you and have a great day.

Ever upward,

Email to the welfare office about going under a string at The Waverly Job Center.

Greetings HRA, 

I treat everyone at CUNY, HRA, the NYC Comptroller’s office, the USPS, etc., with the utmost respect at all times. 

I’m used to being treated like garbage every time I interact with a federal, state, or city agency. 

People I know pay the top New York law enforcement to torture me. One thing they do is run around to every government agency I interact with and tell the staff to try and pick fights with me to get me kicked out. 

I don’t take it personally because I know that New York law enforcement will have them fired if they don’t do as they are told. To illustrate, I was signed up to take criminal law at CUNY and New York law enforcement had the class canceled because they are trying to set me up and they don’t want me knowing the law. 

I’m typing this email from HRA The Waverly Job Center on West 14th Street in New York City. 

The reason I’m here is that HRA mailed a check to my storage company and New York law enforcement stole the check out of the mail. They have stolen my mail hundreds of times. 

The reason I’m sending this note is because of something that just happened. I have been at the Waverly Job Center patiently waiting for a few hours. I’m been doing schoolwork the whole time. I’m a full-time student at CUNY. 

I walked up to one of the FJC security guards and was politely asking if they called my number and I missed it. As I’m standing there a member of the NYPD starts bolting towards us. 

There was two poles with a string so I went under it to get out of the way. I have no idea who the cop was looking for. 

After I went under the string I said to myself New York law enforcement would have a field day with a picture of me going under a string with a police officer walking in my direction at HRA. 

I just wanted to mention it because I had nothing to do with that situation. I’m patiently waiting as always. I’m walking on eggshells because New York law enforcement has people harass me constantly and is trying to sabotage me every chance they get.

Thank you and have a great day.

Ever upward,

This is another email I just sent to Steven Banks the Commissioner of The New York City Human Resources Administration / Department of Social Services (HRA/DSS)

Greetings,

My HRA public assistance case recertification was moved from November 2020 to December 2020 for some reason. I’m not sure why.

I believe I can recertify my public assistance case on either October 15 or November 1. Not sure which one, but it’s one or the other. Normally I would be able to recertify my HRA case on September 15 or October 1.

Is it going to affect my pubic assistance case that a $5000 student loan is going to hit my account literally the day I’m up for recertification of my public assistance case now that the date was moved? I was told I was allowed to receive a student loan while on public assistance. I just want to make sure.

I want the student loan 100%. I need it to survive this winter. I’m not going to a homeless shelter and everything is closed including the subway where I normally sleep when it’s freezing outside. I wouldn’t go to a homeless shelter, I’ve been there and I don’t like it. I’ll leave it at that.

I’m going to spend a few dollars of my student loans to rent access to co-working spaces that I can use to get out of the cold for a few hours here and there and get my schoolwork done.

Of course, I have to throw in here I have a 4.0 GPA after 27 credits with a 100% attendance record. All while being homeless the whole time.

Please provide any feedback you deem appropriate.

Thank you and have a great day.

Ever upward,

Mark Pine
