State Auditor John 'Frugal' Dougall is a staunch fiscal conservative committed to key principles: fiscal discipline, limited government and a focus on performance and accountability.


Dougall is the taxpayer’s watchdog, working to ensure their tax dollars are spent legally, efficiently, and effectively. Dougall believes the State Auditor should provide the public an independent assessment of financial operation, statutory compliance, and performance management for state and local government.


Four years ago, Dougall challenged a 17-year incumbent, bringing a new focus and energy to the Auditor’s office. Dougall continues to challenge entrenched bureaucracies, delivering greater accountability to Utah’s taxpayers.


As a 10-year legislator, Dougall consistently championed Utah’s taxpayers, including co-sponsoring the largest tax cut in Utah’s history and helping protect the State’s AAA bond rating and its best-managed ranking.


Dougall has a long career in the technology sector, working for large companies and small start-ups, in an array of management and technical positions.


Dougall received his Master of Business Administration degree from Brigham Young University in 2000. He also has a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering, both from Brigham Young University.
