For him, it is about working together with the government, and through this, he has been able to help lots of people through a lobbying firm of his own; Politank, which uses government forums to articulate private interest.
Francisco Domenech was born in San Jose, which is the largest city in Puerto Rico on the 29th of April 1978, and even though he spent part of his childhood in the U.S, he graduated two times from the University of Puerto Rico, first in 1999 with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree and then later in 2003 with a Juris Doctor degree from the university’s Law School.
The latter degree would go on to help him attain the position of Director in the Office of Legislative Services of Puerto Rico which he held for a couple of years from 2005 to 2008, where he had a staff of 130 employees, and an annual budget of $11 Million. During his time as director, he helped a lot in public service including his participation in the consideration of legislation pieces which were over 800.
