Albright to Speak at Burk Fundraiser

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.

    The Leesburg Town Council is the most partisan “non-partisan” public body in the Commonwealth. Not so bright Albright spoke something crazy last time she was let loose before some Loudoun Co students. She said ” there has been a kind of hysteria in some circles about allowing foreigners to come into our country”. What an extremist. Nowhere has there been “HYSTERIA”! Read a book MA and start with a dictionary.

    I hope she doesn’t embarrass Kelly by claiming, “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t vote for other women.”

    Remember that classic zinger Bernie supporters? Yeah, good times, good times.

    Albright, obviously, believes women are incapable of thinking for themselves on issues and policies such as taxation, overcrowding, horrific traffic congestion, development, or kitchen table issues woman face everyday in Leesburg. Nope. In her 1 percenter world, women should just blindly vote for body parts and not examine the issues and candidates, and make the personal choice of who’s best for them.

    Newspapers shouldn’t be promoting candidate fundraisers unless the papers promote all of them. There is nothing ‘unusual’ about Secy. Albright speaking at a Democratic fundraiser in this county. She lives here.

    I would be very interested in asking and knowing about her thoughts on the ATT short hill development and bunker since she is a direct neighbor… wonder if she was consulted??? Her land backs right up to the site on the Hillsboro side…. if they had succeeded with the 160K square foot data center….her land would have plummeted in value… Maybe they are saving her a space in the bunker in case of war or attack….just thinking out loud…
