Members of Seacoast Peace Response and Occupy New Hampshire Seacoast braved Sunday's cold to conduct their annual war tax Penny Poll in Market Square asking people what they felt were important areas in which to spend federal tax dollars.
The Penny Poll asks everyone to choose how they want their tax dollars spent. It uses a large display board with containers in which to distribute 10 pennies that are provided by the group. The spending options included veterans’ benefits, environmental protection, transportation, housing, military, nuclear weapons, arts and humanities, agriculture, education and child care, and health care.
