The September 14, 2010 Primary Election was characterized by several hotly contested campaigns leading up to the November 2, 2010 General Election. There were 16 people seeking to be elected to one of the three Allegany County Commissioner positions, and three candidates for Sheriff. The City of Cumberland had 9 candidates running for the three available seats on the City Council. With no primary required, there were 3 candidates for the office of Mayor of the City of Cumberland and 6 individuals running for the four open seats on the six member non-partisan Allegany County Board of Education.

Unless otherwise noted, the 2010 newspaper campaign ads depicted here for the most part appeared in the August 31 and October 29, 2010 "Issues and Answers" supplements from the Cumberland Times-News.

Francis "Champ" Zumbrun, a Republican, was a candidate for the Board of Allegany County Commissioners in 2010. Zumbrun served over 30 years with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources including the position of Manager of Green Ridge State Forest. He is also a local historian and author. Zumbrun lost in the September 14, 2010 Republican primary.

Bill DuVall, a Democratic candidate for the office of Allegany County Commissioner who promises new leadership, won in the September 2010 Democratic primary but lost in the November 2, 2010 General Election.

Creade Brodie Jr., a Republican, is a candidate for the Board of Allegany County Commissioners in 2010. Making Allegany County "business friendly" and support for the local coal industry are two of his primary concerns. Brodie was part of a Republican sweep elected to the three-member Board of Allegany County Commissioners in the November 2010 General Election. Brodie was re-elected to the office of Allegany County Commissioner in 2014.

Frank K. Nethken served as Mayor of Cumberland from 1978 to 1982. In 1990 and 1992 he ran unsuccessfully as a Republican for the Sixth District Congressional seat. Nethken had also announced his candidacy for Congress in 2007, but basically dropped out of the contest to run for the office of United States President. Nethken had also run for the U.S. Senate in 1994 and for Mayor of Cumberland again in 2006. In 2010 Nethken made a second unsuccessful bid for the office of Allegany County Commissioner, this time as a write-in candidate with the slogan, "Jobs for Allegany County".
