I'm not in the business of telling people how to do their jobs, but if you're an elected official and want to instill trust in your constituents, show up with a Captain America shield.

Lan Diep proudly wore a Captain America shield on his arm while taking the oath of office this week. 

Dan Liep says there's "no metaphor."

“Except that it represents America’s ideals and I do hope to aspire to those ideals of fair play, equal justice, and democracy during my term,” Diep said. “But really, I just had this awesome shield and I wanted a chance to show it off.”

So wear that shield. Your constituents will either love you or think you don't take this job seriously at all. One or the other!
