John White was first elected to the Nova Scotia House of Assembly as MLA for Glace Bay-Dominion in 2021.
John has been involved in his community for decades beginning with the New Aberdeen Police Boys Club. After serving 20 plus years he moved on to serving the community as a volunteer firefighter with Glace Bay Volunteer Fire Dept. where he serves to this day.

In addition to these community groups, John is a current member of the Glace Bay Food bank board of directors and he also serves as a mental health professional with the Nova Scotia Critical Incident Stress Management team where he is past chair.
