About John Dolstra
John Dolstra has been a resident of Whitby all of his life. Working at General Motors for more than 30 years, he and his wife Beverley have raised 4 children in Whitby and are loving grandparents to 10 grandchildren.
John has always had a vision for Whitby.
In 1990, John felt that his vision for Whitby was not being met and was elected as the Centre Ward Councillor.
As the Centre Ward Councillor, John was a member of the finance committee, chair of fire services, chair of the town clerks department, vice-chair of planning and vice-chair of operations. John supported the new boat launch in port Whitby, he supported the new Fire Hall on Taunton Road and also supported the expansion of the seniors activity centre in Whitby. All the while, we held the line on taxes.
In 2003 John Dolstra was elected as Whitby Trustee for the Durham District School Board.
Under the leadership of John, Whitby has seen 7 new public schools, 1 new high school, an 8 room addition at Winchester School and 2 new french immersion programs as a result.Parents from all over Whitby are greatful for the commitment John has put forth into making these schools a reality. Mr. Dolstra has also supported the purchase of 15 acres of land for a new high school in Brooklin.
John Dolstra was also instrumental in negotiating reduced transit rates for students across Durham Region. Working in partnership with the Region, John has helped every student that relies on transit by getting the costs reduced.
Parents at Captain Michael Vandenboss school are also thankful for the efforts of John Dolstra and Jim Flaherty in bringing back the Snowbirds.
John Dolstra knows what it takes to balance budgets. John Dolstra has served as chair of finance in the Durham District School Board and has seen 7 balanced budgets in as many years, with no tax increases from the Provincial government.

"We thank the members of the ARC and the public for their input on this important process," said Whitby Trustee, John Dolstra. - School flypast a 'Go', 4 Sept 2006 [cached]
Whitby school trustee John Dolstra, of the Durham District School Board, was reduced to tears by the flypast's reinstatement.
"Everybody was excited once they heard the news.I even had a little cry about it actually.It has been a long 48 hours," said Dolstra.He had lobbied officials right up to Defence Minister Gordon O'Connor to overturn the flypast cancellation.
Dolstra said when he went yesterday to the school, located on the edge of a rural area near Rossland Rd. and Brock St. "there must have been 50 or 60 kids and parents all excited (at the news)."
Dolstra said of Flaherty's personal appeal: "If the minister of finance of Canada can't get this resolved, nobody can."
