My main beef about Mr. Travis isn't really about any of this stuff, to be honest; rather, it's about his complete lack of any real substance in his positions. His entire campaign seems to focus on his name and his ancestor, as if being the quintuple great nephew of "the sick guy at the Alamo who died first" is some kind of qualification to be Sheriff of Denton County.
Travis mentions the historical connection at every personal appearance, and his website is practically a joke. Of course, I don't expect much more than a few pathetic attempts at conservative buzzwords on most of these candidates' sites, but there's absolutely no substance on the entire site. His home page and about me page both mention the "forefather" connection prominently, and his "Rich Texas History" page is just filler, a complete copy of the "famous" letter the original Travis sent from the Alamo (I admit I'm biased against it because I had to memorize it for some stupid reason in middle school.) But there are no issue positions or anything real to speak of except "I'm related to a famous Texan, therefore you should vote for me" and "crime is too high" at one point in the video.
