Travis has traveled the country and the world in his professional endeavors, but has always called Ohio his home.
In 2007, Travis ran for mayor of his home town Bexley. While he didn't win, many of his campaign ideas were implemented by the city.

In 2010, he ran for U.S. Congress in the 12th District. His campaign videos were a national hit, being featured on PBS, CNN and The Jay Leno Show.

His political writings and videos have been featured on the Guardian, Vice, HuffPost and Jesse Ventura's web series "Off the Grid."
In 2018, Travis recognized the need for a non-standard, non-establishment candidate, who cares more about Ohio than "climbing the political ladder."
Todd Grayson for Lieutenant Governor
J. Todd Grayson was born in Fremont, Ohio and graduated from Ohio State University with a degree in Business Administration and Marketing. He is a devoted husband and father, and they live in Perrysburg, Ohio.
His early work experience exposed him to the plight of small business owners. He is now a co-owner and director at Crushproof Tubing Company, an Ohio manufacturer and distributor of rubber tubing.
Todd served for over four years on Perrysburg City Council, and fought very hard for the rights of his fellow citizens and businesses alike. Whether it was zoning issues, overreaching laws, heavy-handed assessments, unfair taxes, wasteful programs, or eminent domain abuse, he was there speaking out for those who had little voice. Most importantly, he changed the debate on many issues by looking at them from a different angle.
J. Todd Grayson
Todd was Chair of the Health, Sanitation, and Public Utilities Committee and knows about water, waste water, and the impact that our public utility systems can have on government finances, user rates, and the environment. He has a solid understanding of the challenges faced by plant operators and government managers alike.
Todd looks forward to helping run a lean, efficient, responsive, and respectful government.
