He was a delegate to the Democratic National Convention during four consecutive election cycles and represented the Young Democrats of America as a member of the DNC from 2007 – 2012.
The 2008 and 2016 Presidential election campaigns helped hone his political skills further, as Domenech served as Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Campaign Manager in Puerto Rico in 2008, and was a member of her National Finance Committee in 2016. During both election cycles, Clinton achieved victories in the primary races in Puerto Rico.
The 2016 election year was an active one for Francisco Domenech. He took on the title of Campaign Manager for the Hon. Jenniffer Gonzalez. The effort helped the candidate to become the first woman (and youngest individual) to represent Puerto Rico before Congress as the Resident Commissioner.
An additional achievement in 2016 was Domenech’s inclusion on Caribbean Business Magazine’s 40 Under 40 list of the most promising and accomplished professionals in Puerto Rico. This was the first time the publication allowed readers to vote for their choice of nominee. Not only did Domenech make the list, he received the most votes of all the nominees.
