Jon Hulburd, Base Partner and President
|Jon Hulburd grew up in the West and has raised his family of five children in Phoenix, Arizona. Jon is a businessman and an attorney whose work has taken him from Capitol Hill to a partnership in an Arizona law firm. Perhaps most significantly, Jon has spent his adult life working to improve the circumstances of the people around him, particularly those of children who face life-threatening illness.
Jon was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma – the product of a Republican father and Democratic mother. When Jon was just seven, the family settled in Washington State, where Jon remained until he headed off to Colorado College in 1977. His personal pattern of hard work was, by then, firmly established. He graduated with a combined Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and Political Science.
Jon earned his Masters in International Affairs from George Washington University, working at the U.S. Senate for Senator Gary Hart, during the daytime and attending university classes at night. His Senate work ran the gamut of legislative office duties, including everything from intern to mail clerk to legislative assistant.
In 2010, Jon ran for congress in Arizona’s 3rd district (Phoenix) against Republican Ben Quayle. What first appeared to be a safe Republican seat turned into one of the most watched races in the country. He raised over $1.6 million into his campaign committee. His fiscal conservatism, tough stance on immigration and progressive positions on social issues made him popular with republicans and independents. Although he is sitting out the 2012 election cycle, Jon remains active in the Arizona Democratic party and is convinced that a moderate, pro-business candidate is the right fit for his state.
Jon now focuses most of his attention on making a difference in his community. He believes some of his best work has been in the not-for-profit sector. He donated his legal skills to the Golden Gate Community Center in Phoenix (a Head-Start facility serving the Latino community of South Phoenix), and his time to All Saints’ Episcopal Day School and the Phoenix Thunderbirds (the hosts of the PGA Phoenix Open). Hulburd is currently on the Board of Directors for New Way Academy (a private school for kids with learning differences) and Phoenix Children’s Hospital, where he serves as Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors.
