Talking Tax Policy with John “Frugal” Dougall

Town Hall Meeting Held Saturday, April 11, 2020 at 3:00 PM

We appreciate our special guest for this town hall meeting John “Frugal” Dougall who I asked to join us to discuss tax policy, the recent referendum, and where we go from here.Referendum

As many of you know I was very involved in the recent Tax Referendum but I wanted to illustrate that I was not just someone jumping on a bandwagon fueled by social media but understood the issues

  • I was involved from the beginning in this effort and even supplied a large part of the money to push it forward. This was done mostly as matches to smaller donations whenever funds were needed.  These were done anonymously because I felt the credit belonged to the grassroots. I had no intention of running for office at the time but was asked by people across the state to put my hat in the ring. 
  • I didn’t simply sign it at the last moment, I took decisive action to help make it successful.
  • This was one of the greatest grassroots movements in recent history.  

My purpose for inviting Auditor Dougall is because I have deep respect for his vast policy knowledge especially concerning tax issues.
