John Dougall John Dougall is a staunch fiscal conservative. As a 10-year legislator, Dougall has consistently defended Utah's taxpayers, including co-sponsoring the largest tax cut in Utah's history. As the House Vice Chair of Executive Appropriations, Dougall currently oversees Utah's nearly $13 billion budget, helping protect the State's AAA bond rating. Dougall knows Utah's finances first-hand. With an MBA, Dougall has the finance, accounting, technology and leadership skills required to serve as State Auditor, a job that requires diverse skills to protect taxpayers and assist policymakers. Dougall is committed to key conservative principles: fiscal discipline, limited government plus a focus on performance and accountability. For Utah to continue to be "the best-managed state in America", Utah needs more than another CPA as State Auditor. Now is time for the State Auditor to embrace 21st century responsibilities. Utahns detest waste and corruption in government. They expect efficient, effective government, not rigid or reckless bureaucracies. In the Legislature, Dougall has championed greater transparency and accountability in government. A constant message of fiscal prudence has earned him the nickname "Frugal Dougall." Dougall never shies away from asking the hard questions, challenging the status quo, tackling the difficult issues, and eliminating government waste.
