RATEPAYERS in the Moyne Shire are being offered a free feed if Yambuk man David Sinnott wins a place on council.
Mr Sinnott has pledged to hold a free barbecue for the community if he is elected.
He said the barbecue will be held on the first weekend after the declaration of the polls with all costs to come out of his own pocket.
The Yambuk resident said the event would be held in order to hear from ratepayers about what they wanted Moyne councillors to achieve over the coming four years.
"If I'm fortunate enough to be elected, I want to roll up my sleeves and start working straight away," Mr Sinnott said.
"Holding a barbecue on the weekend after polls are declared will be an opportunity to hear first-hand from ratepayers about what they want from their council.
"I haven't heard of any other council candidate across Victoria making a pledge like this.
“It's something different and an event that won't cost the council one cent."
Mr Sinnott said his campaign was totally independent and he chose not to take part in any preference deals.
He has called for increased investment in country roads, a hard rubbish trial for elderly residents and expansion of town car parking.
"Ratepayers are my first priority, I wasn't interested in any preference deals," he said.
"It's fantastic if you give me your first vote but if you give me your second preference, that's great too."
