Junie Joseph was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and moved to the United States at the age of 14 years old. She has five younger brothers between the ages of 16 to 25. After graduating from high school, Junie went on to earn a B.A. in Political Science with a minor in Anthropology from the University of Florida. Additionally, she received a Master’s in Applied Human Rights from the University of York in England. On Council, Junie intends to continue the legacy of her campaign on advocating for socio-economic diversity and political inclusion for all Boulder community members.

Mary Young is the eldest of five, first-generation children of Mexican immigrants, Mary spoke only Spanish when she started grade school in Texas. Forced immersion proved to be the quickest way to learn so she managed to pass first grade, and then some. Mary studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Texas, El Paso, eventually leading her to start a career in Boulder. She has held positions with various nonprofits including Growing Gardens of Boulder County and Via Mobility Services.
