Satchell supports restoring the Historical Tax Credit. He also supports collective bargaining rights, marriage equality, and further investments in renewable energy.[3]

He has stated, "I hope to bring pride back to West Warwick. I hope to help revitalize our downtown area as well as bring business to our industrial park. I hope to bring life into the downtown and vacant mill properties by restoring the Historical Tax Credit. I also hope to prevent any further cuts to education in West Warwick. I will also try to restore state and federal aid to those in need in our town. While many of my ideas have statewide applications, my first focus will always be the people and the town of West Warwick!"[4]
