Chicago’s city treasurer is quitting.

Stephanie Neely told her staff Monday she’ll step down at the end of next month.

The move will allow Mayor Emanuel to appoint her replacement heading into next February’s city election.

Neely was working for an investment firm in 2006 when then-mayor Richard M. Daley appointed her treasurer.

She was elected in 2007 and again in 2011.

Investment executive Kurt Summers Jr. is considered a top candidate to be appointed by Emanuel.
