An eight foot statue of Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famer Chuck Berry is drawing opposition by a group led by a former official. The Berry statue is scheduled to be installed next week in a public plaza near the University Club where Berry still performs. 86-year-old Elsie Glickert, who served 11 years on the University City council, has asked the city council to delay the installation of the statue.

Citing Berry’s conviction in 1962 of violating the Mann Act, transporting a woman across state lines for immoral purposes, Glickert said, “This man is a felon and not a friend of women. It is a misuse of tax dollars to honor him on public property.” – Yahoo News

City manager Lehman Walker has said the statue was properly approved and plans for a July 29th dedication ceremony will go proceed.
