Additional Information

Mark Patrick Morgan ran to represent the 78th District in the Illinois State House of Representatives in 1982 Morgan, a private practice lawyer, won the Republican party nomination after being unopposed in the primaries. Previously, Morgan was the president of the Bremen (IL) Young Republicans and Treasurer of Bremen Township Regular Republicans. He also served on the Work Education Council for southern Chicago suburbs and was a member of the Country Hills Lions club. He had experience in politics as an aide for Illinois State Senator Ron A. Moore. 

Morgan's opponent was Democrat Terry A. Steczo who had been serving the 78th district since 1976. During the campaign, Morgan lambasted Steczo for accepting help from the state Democratic Party. On election day, incumbent Steczo easily won with 16,075 votes to Morgan’s 8,690. Morgan would not run for office again; Steczo remained as the 78th district representative for 18 years until 1995.
