Voters elected Jordan Barnett-Parker to a seat on the Board of Selectmen Dec. 15.

Barnett-Parker received 107 votes in a close election against Jason Trundy, who received 100 votes. Barnett-Parker will fill the term, which extends through June 2022, left open by the death of Selectman David Barrows in a tractor accident in September.

Voting took place by secret ballot at the Lincolnville Central School. The majority of voters, 131, voted in person, with 76 returning absentee ballots by the 8 p.m. Dec. 15 deadline.

Barnett-Parker was elected to the Budget Committee in June 2019. In a recent interview, he said he ran for that committee because he wanted to learn more about how the town works.

He is also a member of the Broadband Committee. The town does not have reliable internet service, which he believes is essential, both for the town's many small, home-based businesses and for school children who are doing much of their learning from home amid the coronavirus restrictions. He thinks it is time to work on bringing reliable broadband service to town and to update the comprehensive plan.

He moved with his family to Lincolnville at age 10. In 2013, he opened Jordan Adam Designs, a metal-working studio with a focus on jewelry, located in Lincolnville Center.
