Poll: What do you think of the Provincial Growth Fund?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

This week Northland got another $30m in loans and grants from the Provincial Growth Fund (PGF), which aims to improve infrastructure and create jobs in the regions. But Labour is now saying it will axe the fund if re-elected, while New Zealand First says the $3b fund has done wonders this term. What do you think? Please explain your answers in the comments below.
