Iowa House District 51
Prioritizing a return to civility and finding common ground, Tim Knutson, a Northwood native, healthcare leader and small business owner, announced his bid for State Representative in House District 51 which includes Worth, Mitchell, Howard and part of Winneshiek counties.
Knutson was born and raised in Northwood and graduated from Northwood-Kensett High School. Tim went on to receive a Master’s degree in Healthcare Administration and dedicated his career to the healthcare field where he worked to recruit doctors to rural hospitals.
Knutson’s roots in the district are deep, his Norwegian emigrant great-great-grandfather, Gulbrand Mellem, was the first European settler of Worth County and his great-grandfather, T.C. Rone, served two terms as a State Representative from Worth County. Tim lives on his family’s Heritage Farm west of Northwood.
Tim is the owner of Tim’s Tractors, a tractor restoration business as well as Knutson Consulting, a healthcare management consulting business and spends his free time singing in the local church choir.
