“Now there are dads pushing strollers up and down Main Street and kids in every café. It’s incredible,” says Sweeney. 

There are also flowers, lots of flowers.

NEW HAVEN — If Archie Flower were to come up with a campaign slogan, it would probably be “Live and let live.”

That phrase, in essence, sums up the philosophy of the Libertarian Party under whose banner Flower, a 47-year-old New Haven resident, is running for one of the two state Senate seats representing Addison County, Huntington and Buel’s Gore.

“It’s the golden rule,” Flower said during a Monday interview.
