U.S. SENATE — U.S. Senator Steve Daines today announced his guest for President Donald J. Trump’s upcoming State of the Union address, Jodi Moore, wife of the deceased Broadwater County Deputy Sheriff Mason Moore.
Mason Moore, Deputy Sheriff of Broadwater County, was tragically shot and killed while on duty in May 2017. Moore left behind three children and his wife, Jodi. Since her husband’s passing, Jodi has worked as an advocate for first responders and their families.
“I’m honored to bring Jodi as my guest to President Trump’s State of the Union address. No spouse should ever have to go through the pain she and her family did when Mason was tragically killed. And because of that, she has been a tireless advocate for Montana’s first responders and their families. I’m incredibly proud of her dedication, and I look forward to seeing her in Washington, D.C,” Daines said.
“I am very honored by the opportunity to attend the State of the Union as Senator Daines’ guest. I am very grateful to Senator Daines and his staff for taking care of us from day 1 and caring about our family, that includes our First Responder Family. Senator Daines has listened to my frustrations and disappointment about funding for First Responders across the state and has show and is showing his support. Being able to attend the State of the Union is all because of being blessed to be Mason’s wife, and I am incredibly proud of him,” Moore said.
Every member of Congress is allowed one guest to the President’s State of the Union Address. Last year, Daines’ guest was Dani Highley of Deer Lodge, a beneficiary of the reauthorization of the Children’s Health Insurance Plan (CHIP).
