Rick Atkinson, a Republican, promised "Better Leadership And Attitude" if elected to the office of Allegany County Commissioner in 2010. Atkinson was unsuccessful in both the primary and as a write-in candidate in the November General Election.

Thomas David McNemar, a Republican candidate for the office of Allegany County Commissioner, lost in the September 14, 2010 Republican primary.

Ed Hedrick was elected to the Cumberland City Council in 2000, and was re-elected in 2004. He chose not to seek re-election in 2008 and left office in 2009. A Democrat, Hedrick finished third in the September 2010 Democratic primary for Allegany County Commissioner, but was later defeated in the November 2, 2010 General Election.

Tom Striplin, a Democrat, was appointed to the Allegany County Board of Education in 2004, and was elected to a four-year term to that position in 2006. In February 2010, and with a campaign motto of, "Leadership - Accountability - Trust", Striplin filed for candidacy for election to the Board of Allegany County Commissioners. Though difficult to read, the blue pen depicted in this photograph reads, "Elect Tom Striplin Allegany County Commissioner - Authority: Citizens for Tom Striplin". Striplin was defeated in the November General Election in a Republican sweep to the three-member Board of Allegany County Commissioners. Striplin again ran for County Commissioner in 2014. Again, he was defeated in a Republican sweep in the November 2014 General Election.

Barbara Boyd Roque was elected to the Board of Allegany County Commissioners in 2002 and served in that office from December 12, 2002 until 2006. Elected in 2002 as a Democrat, Roque switched her party affiliation to Republican in September 2003. She was unsuccessful in her 2006 re-election bid. The back of the 2002 campaign card depicted here featured "An Easy Guide to Tipping", based upon 15% or 20% on bills ranging from $1.00 to $50.00. Barbara Roque's Treasurer in her 2002 campaign was Dixie Pownall, and her campaign theme was "Caring About Our County - Caring About Our Community - Caring About YOU".
