Cate Savage

Deputy Mayor

Councillor Cate Savage is a long time Banker with over 25 years’ experience, specializing in commercial real estate.  Cate holds the position of Senior Commercial Account Manager for South West Nova Scotia at RBC.  Cate was transferred to the Annapolis Valley in 1994 with RBC and never looked back.  She moved from Halifax where she was born and raised.  Cate has resided in various parts of the Valley but moved to the town in 2011.  Kentville then became Cate’s home and Kentville is where she will stay!  

Councillor Savage loves the community spirit and the commitment the residents have to their town.   Cate feels that Kentville represents a great deal to the residents and surrounding area residents as well.   Kentville offers recreation/business/activities/trails/amazing food.  “We really do offer it all in this town” she says.  “Kentville is, and can be, so many things to so many people depending on age and what your goals and aspirations are”.  Kentville is, in Cate’s word, a "gem".   

Councillor Savage has served on many boards and committees.  Cate is a past President of the Kentville Business Community, Past President and Co-Founder of the Valley Women’s Business Network Association, Past Chair and current Director of Landmark East Association, and Past Chair and currently a Trustee of the Landmark East Foundation. Cate is also a director of the Valley Regional Hospital Foundation, a group who helped build the Hospice in Kentville. Cate is also proud to call herself a Rotarian and is the recipient of the Paul Harris Fellows Award.

It seemed a natural progression for Cate Savage to reoffer her name in efforts to effect more change.  Cate enjoys process and politics at the same time. Cate says, “we are all individuals and it’s a joy to hear all of the opinions of others while making important decisions that will affect the residents of this town”.
