MARYBOROUGH shop keeper Gordon Dale has officially launched his campaign as a candidate for the federal seat of Wide Bay, as a member of Katter's Australian Party.

Launching his campaign in Gympie on Thursday, Mr Dale urged people to read the core values and principles of the Katter's Australian Party instead of dismissing the newcomers.

"They (the core values) are the reason I chose to stand up for the people of our electorate," Mr Dale said.

"A simple framework of common-sense policies to grow Australian industry, support our farmers, help our fellow Aussies in true Australian spirit."

Mr Dale had an unsuccessful run at the state election, losing out to incumbent Member for Maryborough Anne Maddern, who stood for the LNP.

But he said he was ready to lead the region.

"I want to get out there and get on with the job at hand - too much time is procrastinated away with lethargic politicians making decisions based on what their party superiors dictate," Mr Dale said.

"Our farmers feed this nation yet our foreign imports continue to grow with increasing risk of biosecurity and no one will put a stop to it for fear it may upset a foreign nation."

He said he could not stand by and watch fellow Australians suffer any longer.

"I must take action," he said.
