Timothy S. Ramthun (born March 13, 1957) is an American consultant and politician, currently serving in the Wisconsin State Assembly, representing Hartford, Kewaskum, and neighboring towns of Calumet, Sheboygan, Fond du Lac, and Washington counties. He was first elected in 2018.

Biography

Ramthun was born and raised in Kewaskum, Wisconsin. After high school, Ramthun obtained various certifications in technology and business management, and worked as a business management consultant. Ramthun was elected to the Kewaskum Board of Education and served as President of the board for two years.[1]

His first attempt at election to the Wisconsin State Assembly was in 2014, when he ran in the Republican primary to replace Daniel LeMahieu, but was defeated by Jesse Kremer.[2] Four years later, in 2018, Kremer chose not to run for re-election and Ramthun again entered the Republican primary. This time he prevailed over the Republican field and went on to win the general election without opposition.[3]
