Mother to former BVNW student provides ways to help gain transparency in local government


At BVNW, John Albers was involved in AVID, track and field, wrestling, and soccer.

Three years after former BVNW student John Albers’ death, mother Sheila Albers suggests ways to help increase transparency in local government after records requests from Overland Park Police Department and Johnson County District Attorney were denied.

First, Sheila said that people should read Steve Albers’ letter to the editor printed in The Kansas City Star, along with watching a story from 41 Action News – KSHB – TV pushing for records to be published. As well as, make a phone call or write an email to [email protected] “demanding transparency; release of the OSIT report and the resignation agreement,” Sheila said in an instagram post.
