Before reaching the age of 30, he argued on behalf of the Puerto Rico Senate before a relatively rare en banc hearing of the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit in the case of Igartúa De La Rosa v. United States of America. Following his appointment as Director of the Office of Legislative Services of Puerto Rico, he aggressively pursued activities that benefited the citizenry of his homeland, including expanding the Tomas Bonilla Legislative Library, operating a 100-intern summer program for three consecutive years, and achieving budget surpluses for four consecutive years.
His experience in managing successful presidential campaigns within the Puerto Rico Physicians Association and his service on the National Finance Campaign, Ready for Hillary, for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Presidential bid has helped Domenech become a sought-after media outlet commentator on both political as well as legislative issues. A delegate on four separate occasions to the Democratic National Convention, Domenech is an adamant supporter of Puerto Rico’s admission as the 51st state of the United States.
Through his Puerto Rico-based lobbying firm, Politank, as well as individually, Francsico Domenech has demonstrated support for a wide variety of philanthropic endeavors, including the Hispanic Heritage Foundation, the Museum of Art of Puerto Rico, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, and the Clinton Foundation.
