Fox4 Interviews Ruder on KCMO’s Compass KC Outage

“Systems go down. Online platforms are not ‘set it and forget it’ infallible things. They get bugs. They get attacks, whatever the case may be. The system will go down occasionally for maintenance. They’ll take it down, but they’ll advertise that fact, and you just kind of plan around it,” Will Ruder, Executive Vice President of the KCHBA, said in an interview with FOX4 Thursday. “I think a day or two, that’s kind of where the annoyance starts transitioning to, ‘What in the world’s going on? How is this going to get resolved? When is it going to get resolved?”

In Fox4 reporter Jonathan Ketz’s news segment, he noted that Mayor Quinton Lucas’ Press Secretary Jazzlyn Johnson referred him to City Press Secretary Sherae Honeycutt. “Honeycutt works in City Manager Brian Platt’s office. Platt and Honeycutt won’t comment to FOX4 on camera. Honeycutt hadn’t released any update Thursday afternoon.”
