John Acer, a long-time Republican Party conservative activist, died Sunday morning after a long, courageous battle with a rare blood cancer disease.
He had served many roles in the GOP, including precinct committeeman, state committeeman, district chairman, delegate to the Republican National Convention, and officer of the National Republican Assemblies,
John was a graduate of Princeton University Law School and a real go-to legal mind for worthy efforts. One effort was his role as legal counsel during the initiative process which established as Arizona law that those registering to vote had to show that they were U.S. citizens and show ID when they voted. John worked closely with former state Senator Russell Pearce and former Republican State Chairman Randy Pullen to insure this initiative became law.
John was a highly respected man in the Arizona community and will be missed by many.
