Former Chandler Mayor Jerry Brooks, an advocate of arts and culture in the city, has died. He was 89.

Brooks died on Jan. 14, according to a statement from the city announcing his death.

Brooks served on the Chandler City Council from 1982 to 1984 and as mayor from 1984 to 1988 following a 30-year military career.

During his time on the council, he was a proponent of creating a strong arts and culture program which he felt would attract top employers to the city.

He was instrumental in the construction of the performing arts center and still served on long-range planning for the center until recently, said Michelle Mac Lennan, general manager at the Chandler Center for the Arts.
