Stephanie Neely, Chicago city treasurer, announced Monday she will not run for re-election in early 2015.
Ms. Neely is a trustee on the boards of five Chicago public pension funds: the $10.8 billion Chicago Public School Teachers’ Pension & Retirement Fund; $5.3 billion Chicago Municipal Employees’ Annuity & Benefit Fund; $3.1 billion Chicago Policemen’s Annuity & Benefit Fund; $1.4 billion Chicago Laborers’ Annuity & Benefit Fund; and $1 billion Chicago Firemen’s Annuity & Benefit Fund.
Ms. Neely is also chairwoman of the laborers’ pension fund board.
She will be replaced in those posts by the next elected city treasurer. The general election is scheduled for February 2015, with a possible runoff in April 2015.
Ms. Neely was first elected city treasurer in 2007 and was re-elected in 2011.
