Since then, she has returned to private law practice and continues to serve the community as the Chair of the Kansas City Tax Increment Financing Commission.

Governor serves on commissions that: advocate for senior citizens; appropriates funds to homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters, transitional housing, emergency housing assistance, the development of low-income housing and rental assistance.
