ABOUT FRUGAL DOUGALL
John “Frugal” Dougall has spent years fighting to keep government off Utahns’ backs and out of their pockets.

Reining in a bloated federal government requires cutting spending, balancing budgets, increasing government transparency, improving performance, and eliminating pointless bureaucratic programs.
As State Auditor, Frugal Dougall is the taxpayers’ watchdog, exposing government waste, fraud, corruption, and abuse. His team pursued government officials who preyed on taxpayers. They exposed government programs that failed to follow the rules and regulations. Frugal Dougall led his team to do what many considered impossible, bringing transparency to where the money goes in public education. His audits and projects helped taxpayers hold their state and local governments accountable.

He championed tax reform to keep more money in the hands of Utah families and to make Utah’s economy stronger. He increased government transparency, sponsoring the financial transparency website which provides transaction-level details by state and local government spending and sponsoring the public meeting notice website which helps taxpayers monitor their public meetings.
