LINCOLNVILLE, Maine - The drummer for the jam band Phish has been elected to his Maine town's Board of Selectmen.
 
Jon Fishman will take a place on Lincolnville's five-seat Board of Selectmen after winning Tuesday's non-partisan election. He and his wife, Briar, have five children and have lived in the seaside town for the past decade.
 
There were two seats open in the Lincolnville election. Fishman will take a seat on the board alongside filmmaker Josh Gerritsen, who was also one of the top vote getters.
 
Fishman received 356 votes and Gerritsen received 370.
