What was at stake?

Andrew Gonzalez was the only incumbent to appear on the ballot even though he resigned from the board on August 21, 2013. His name remained on the ballot because the withdrawal took place after the creation of a final candidates list.[3] Fellow members Eugene Donofrio and Fred Colabella did not seek re-election in 2013.[4]
