Chartwell West is the personal blog of writer Sean Patrick Hughes. A veteran, non-profit founder (care4us.org) and special needs parent, Sean has written for the Washington Post, Playboy and Quartz. In May of 2018, his first book, Sixteen: A Rational Account of an Irrational Election was published by Dream Oak Publishing.
In 2015, Chartwell West was founded to explore political and cultural expression on a platform independent of political affiliation or the influence of advertising revenue. Grounded in data, economics, history and a mandate to treat differing ideas with dignity, the site attracts an audience seeking a better commentary on today’s important issues.
Chartwell West is followed by those who seek to understand first and react later; by eclectic thinkers willing to be challenged by different ideas that broaden perspectives; by those seeking input on how to think and not what to think.
