DENVER —Michael B. Hancock has been elected the new mayor of Denver. Hancock served two terms as Denver City Council President and was the youngest CEO of an Urban League chapter in the country.

The Root reports:

Hancock, who was raised by a single mother, grew up in abject poverty with nine siblings. Despite his tough life, Hancock didn’t hide from it; instead, he championed it in his message for the city, likening his life experience to that of the city, which became “the heart of his campaign.”

“We’ve come from difficult situations, we’ve faced serious challenges, but yet we’re still here,” said Hancock, 41, in an interview talking about his seven surviving siblings. All of them, he said, got involved as volunteers on his behalf, as did their mother, Scharlyne Hancock, 72, who made calls to voters for weeks.
