Under the watchful eye of nearly three dozen police officers, the new Governor of the State of San Andreas was sworn in.
Governor Jesse Styles was sworn into office on the steps of Los Santos City Hall, which displays the close nature between the Governor's Office and the City of Los Santos. Chief Justice Agosto Mercati led the swearing in of Styles and officially made him Governor on the rainy afternoon.
The swearing in marks the third Governor in the past few months, with the departure of Governor Jesse Collins and then his replacement, Governor Matthew Douglas, respectively.
Swarmed by deputies, officers and mayoral security, Governor Styles took to the stage and delivered an impassioned speech to the growing crowd. "No matter who you are, no matter where you've come from or where you're going, I want the State of San Andreas to be your home," said Governor Styles. He concluded his speech with an invite in joining him on his mission for peace and prosperity.
Mayor Frank Vaughn, Representative Heidelberg and Appelo as well as members from each state agency were in attendance standing behind Governor Styles in what some are saying was an act of solidarity for their new governor.
In a press release from the office of Representative Appelo, Appelo hoped that as an executive, "Governor Styles will continue down the path of bipartisanship and open mindedness, just as he did when serving as a legislator."
The bipartisanship and open mindedness may have already started as Governor Styles, before taking office, pledged to dole out $11,000,000 to the city of Los Santos' budget opposed to the original asking price of $10,000,000.
Governor Styles, a Republican, was previously the Solicitor General in the Department of Justice and an active member of the State Legislature.
