Someone had to first observe the most obvious ideas and then act upon them for any human invention to take shape. It even took centuries how to figure out fire and the wheel, two of the simplest technologies in the current human lexicon. Even today, people can seize upon an idea that seems obvious but that has not been done. Francisco Domenech stumbled upon such an idea when he started the Young Democrats organization at the University of Puerto Rico.
Today Francisco Domenech can be found at Politank when he is not busy raising his two daughters. Here, he organizes Democratic political campaigns throughout the island. To maintain the edge he needs in his current job, he spends the day reading national and local news and answering e-mails for his contacts. Most of these tasks are done early in the morning, but he still finds time to spend with his two daughters before sending them off to school. Follow Francisco Domenech on twitter for more updates.
His work day normally finds him talking to local politicians and helping them with various local issues, but he has found himself working on campaigns with a larger focus as well. During the 2016 presidential election, he worked with the Hillary Clinton campaign team. The female Clinton lost in the end, but that has not deterred Domenech. He knows there will be other campaigns in the future.
The current state of the nation makes it hard for many Democrats to be optimistic, but Domenech maintains his positivity. Although he understands the temptation for people to give up, he says that it is more important than ever for people to oppose the agenda of the current administration. Creativity will be the best solution, and Domenech routinely comes up with creative political solutions to the island’s current problems. Perhaps the most important thing he offers is hope.
