Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright will be in Leesburg on Sunday to support Kelly Burk’s mayoral campaign.

Burk will hold a fundraiser and rally from 3-6 p.m. Aug. 14 at the Leesburg Diner, 9 S. King St.

Albright, a Hillsboro-area resident who served as Bill Clinton’s secretary of state from 1997 to 2001, will be the keynote speaker at the event.

Burk, Leesburg’s vice mayor, faced Mayor Dave Butler and former councilman Kevin Wright on the November ballot.
