Actually, Governor IS the proper way to address her, just as former presidents are addressed as President so & so.... the titles of Governor and President remain for life....so does ambassador, I believe

Actually, it’s not, despite how hard the MSM tries to distinguish politicians from us mere serfs. Perhaps you accept the yoke with cheer, but many of us will not.

Oh, and just in case you’d like to be educated one why it is NOT acceptable to address a former politicians by the title they NO LONGER hold, here is the protocol (I’ll copy “Governor” for you, feel free to look up the rest):

Former office holders go back to whatever they were before they were governor. Only a Governor in office is formally and officially addressed as Governor (name). The reason? There is only one Governor at at time, and it’s not respectful of the current office holder to refer to former office holders as it they were still in office.
I know we hear newscasters referring to former governors as “Governor.” But officially is incorrect.
