Executive nominee nolingo305 has been appointed to the executive council following a confirmatory vote by the PGAM parliament. He was one of two nominations put forward by the executive team, however parliament's approval vote for the second nominee BromanticRR has been postponed due to technical issues with the voting polls.
"Hello PGAM members, here’s my pitch for the executive council position. I’m a tech lead at a Fortune 500 company, and so I think my skills in coordination/management can translate well into admin work to keep things running smoothly for our group. I’m an easy going person so I work well in a team dynamic, and love to help and answer questions as I am a problem solver by nature and trade. This a great crew of people we have and I am looking to contribute more than I currently do. I hope you’ll vote for me so that I’ll be able to have an impact both in and outside of the game. Thanks for your consideration"
As nolingo joins the team, PGAM founding executive Hustler102 has announced he is stepping down from the council for personal reasons. His dedication & work in setting up PGAM can't be overstated and his patriotic influence will be sorely missed in the corridors of power.
Finally, long time inactive member silett0st0ner has been removed from the council following a recent vote to demote inactive team members that are absent for 1 month or longer. Silett0st0ner was a founding member of the original PCEO council, but has been inactive for the entire duration of PGAM's existence.
PCEO News was forced to unexpectedly close it's Los Santos Office in July, after it emerged the founder of the organisation had been accepting illegal donations from foreign governments, shady multinationals and illicit cartels. The media standards watchdog also launched an investigation into the organisation's apparent mishandling of recent election campaigns, claiming that PCEO News was engaged in politically biased reporting.
As a result of negative PR surrounding the allegations, the fledgling media organisation has undergone an expensive restructuring process, and has recently re-launched with a new brand: PGAM News:
It's believed the cost of the re-brand was in the region of $250,000, which already has Maze Bank investors concerned about the viability of the organisation given it's lack of transparency when it comes to funding.
PGAM News CEO and Founder oo7im had this to say:
The transition from PCEO News to PGAM News was an entirely market driven decision. It had nothing to do with the false allegations of political interference, supporting a coup or infiltrating & abetting terrorist organisations.

Three new Justice Reps have been appointed by the PGAM parliament following nominations from the PGAM executive team.
xskittlzzzzx, SPADEdaLEGEND and mr belic have all joined the Justice Rep team following confirmatory votes, and will work alongside AyGreg Egg, DarkPoet, Wheelz, dash6666 and BromanticRR.
The team is responsible for providing a friendly guidance to new members, as well as gathering evidence of rule infractions and making recommendations to the executive team.

"I've been a dedicated member since nearly the start of pceo. I have huge respect for those that give their time to what goes on here. The majority of my time within the crew has been spent as mostly a silent player who plays along with the rules and just likes help others out. Since 2.0 began I believe I have tried to be a more productive member on discord and not just in the game. I feel like I have been here long enough now to step up and be an official member of the team. Justice rep feels like the place where I would be most helpful, since I am unable to host with my set up and I can't defend for shit. Thank you for everything you guys do and for taking the time to read my application. It would be awesome to be part of the team although rest assured I am just as happy setting a good example as a regular crew member "
"When my first application failed, there were only a few votes, I decided that it wasnt me or my state of affairs at the time (lol), it was that there were others who could fill those shoes better. Now, I know that wasn't entirely true. I know that no one can fill these shoes as I have done, repeatedly, on the job.
There isnt any title, power, or glory that can re-affirm this to me other than continuing to carry the Peace to our members. So, here we are, performing that task same as always, and I remain unchanged and loyal to the purpose. I couldn't place higher values on my relations with Tim, Lagdog, Hustler, and to members of our community. I want to do this and it would be an honour to officially serve as a Justice Rep to our crew. In closing, I want to thank each one of you for doing your part."
"I'll be honest with you guys I've been here maybe about a month and I feel right at home. Seeing that their was an opportunity to be someone to help keep the peace I thought why not. If you guys choose to let me be part of that I appreciate it. If you all decide otherwise I understand.
Your pal Spade"
