HOUSTON COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — In just a few months, people living in Houston County will head to the polls and elect their next commission chairman.

On Wednesday, Commissioner for District 4 in Houston County, Brandon Shoupe, revealed his proposed plan to better schools in the county if he is elected as Chairman of Houston County Schools.

Shoupe is proposing taking a portion of internet sales tax and giving some of those funds to Houston County Schools, to specifically be used to improve school buildings in Houston County.

Shoupe told WDHN that last year the internet sale tax brought in $2.2 million.

“We can’t convince industry to move to Houston County unless we have quality school systems and unless we have quality campuses,” Shoupe said. “We got a great school system in Houston County, but being quite honest, some of the physical infrastructures of those schools, they need some improvements.”

Brandon Shoupe is running against Doug Sinquefield who represents District 2 in Houston County. The statewide primary election will be held on May 24.
