The following is a statement submitted to the Congressional Record:
Mr. DAINES, Mr. President, this week I have the honor of recognizing Marlo Pronovost and Carli Toresdahl for their impact on the Gallatin and Stillwater County.
Marlo and Carli are two sisters from Bozeman, MT. Born and raised in Montana, they both attended Bozeman High school and have stayed close to the area throughout their lives. Later in their lives, the two sisters both married members of Montana law enforcement.
Marlo met her husband 27 years ago, while working as a journalist at the Bozeman Daily Chronicle. They have now been married for 20 years. Carli met her husband also in Bozeman, where he worked in marketing and at the county jail, later becoming a police officer. He has now been a Sargent for 12 years.
Throughout their lives, Marlo and Carli were faced with the biggest challenge of being married to members of law enforcement – the unknown. They stayed strong in overcoming those challenges due to the sense of community between other members of Montana law enforcement and their families. Marlo and Carli relied on the Montana law enforcement community to back each other, regardless of the color of the uniform or department.
I applaud Marlo and Carli for their dedication to Montana. They stayed strong for their communities and have made a lasting impact on the state of Montana.
