According to Bangor Daily News Jon Fishman, the drummer for the band Phish, has been elected as a selectman for the town of Lincolnville.

Jon will soon be opening the Lincolnville General Store and he's been very active in improving his community for years. Bernie Sanders motivated Jon to take his community involvement a step further by running. So, exciting stuff having a polka dot dress wearing drummer on the board.

But wait!, the story gets juicier when you learn who won the other spot that was available on the Lincolnville Board of Selectmen! Josh Gerritsen, son of my favorite author of medical thrillers, Tess Gerritsen! Josh is a filmmaker and designer.

Both produced a thriller movie called Island Zero that was filmed in the Camden, Rockport and Isleford areas.  The film made it's premiere earlier this year in Boston.

I've got to visit Lincolnville, seems all the cool people are living there!
