Jon Fishman from Phish is now an elected official

Go, Fish!

Lincolnville voters elected Jonathan Fishman and Josh Gerritsen to two open seats on the Lincolnville Board of Selectmen, and by large margins approved the creation of a new fund for wastewater treatment and changes to harbor ordinances.

Fishman received 356 votes and Gerritsen received 370 votes, securing the three-year position on the board. Sandy Delano received 227 votes. Fishman is the drummer for the band Phish and is owner of the soon-to-be open Lincolnville General Store. Gerritsen is a filmmaker and this is his second run for the Lincolnville board.

Yep, this guy.

Also this guy.

This guy, too.

Don’t forget about this guy, also…

I mean, say what you will about the truly silliest member of Phish, the man has also really become a different person as he’s grown up. He’s all of the above, but also plenty of the below…

Still mostly this guy, though…

Congrats to Jon Fishman. How cool to see that he’s actually backing up his political bent and really starting at the local level to get something done. It’s a beautiful thing when we see the band members take such pride in their side projects and what they do in the off season.
