Prill and Fekete were incumbents, but slate-mate Ken Lawrence decided not to run for re-election. "I have never run for re-election to any office as an incumbent. That isn't a matter of principle, but it is a logical outcome of my general attitude. Speaking personally, I try to accomplish as much as I feel is essential in the term for which I was elected," Lawrence said after the election in the VSC message board.
