Accountability Utah exists to shed light on
the legislative process, to provide citizens with knowledge and tools to effectively hold
their government accountable, and to secure — for every man, woman, and child — a future of freedom.
We do this by publishing Accountability Reports, alerts,
and information on critical issues, and by providing training to
unleash the power of citizens.
Accountability Utah promotes government that is restrained,
fair, open, and representative; an economy
based on free market principles; and strong individuals and
families. We affirm the God-granted rights and
protections generally outlined in the United States
Constitution, its Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of
Independence. The validity and applicability of these
documents has not diminished over time.
Utah rejects the notion that the power and rights of citizens
should ever be compromised for supposed access, political
maneuverings, or popularity. We believe that many
citizens are frustrated due to corruption and greed so common
in government. Our desire is to see citizens once again
be caretakers and guardians of their freedoms.

the organization may take. It is likewise true that
volunteers do not necessarily speak or

not permitted to be listed volunteers.
