Bio – Jon Gores

Mr. Gores joined D.A. Davidson & Co. in 2006 as a Senior Vice President in the Fixed Income Capital Markets division. Previously, he was with Seattle Northwest Securities for 18 years as Vice President of Public Finance, where he served as Manager of the School Finance Group for Washington State schools.

Since 1985, Jon’s focus of practice has been school district public finance. He has been instrumental in developing financing solutions for specific school district funding needs. His advocacy on behalf of school districts with the State legislature contributed to the repeal of the law that caused the tax rate spike that districts encountered with a mid-year bond sale, and led to the expanded use of limited general obligation (LGO) debt. His efforts resulted in H.B. 1832, which allows school districts to use LGO debt for remodeling of and additions to existing facilities. Most recently Mr. Gores was instrumental in the passage of legislation that allows a direct transfer of state forest revenue from the debt service fund to the capital projects fund.

Jon is a member of WASA, WSSDA, WASBO, and is a featured speaker at numerous conferences. He serves as a trustee of the Washington State School Boards Educational Foundation. He has been a guest lecturer at the University of Washington, WSU, Seattle Pacific University and Seattle University. Mr. Gores served on the School Bond Guarantee Program advisory committee and was appointed to the Finance Committee for the Simple Majority. Jon is a recipient of the Advocate for Education Award by WSU.
