Mayor Pro Tem Pam O’Connor raised $6,675 in campaign donations last fall, financial disclosure forms filed with the City Clerk’s office on Wednesday revealed.

Although O’Connor filed the forms more than six weeks after the Feb. 1 filing deadline, City Hall said she would not be fined for her tardiness.

In a letter to the City Clerk, O’Connor said she filed the forms late because of a knee surgery she underwent in February.

“It was determined that because of her situation that the fine would be waived,” said Deputy City Clerk Esterlina Lugo.

The forms detailed campaign contributions made during the second half of 2009.

O’Connor, who is running for re-election in November, received money from businesses including the Best Western Gateway Hotel, Colorado Creative Studios and the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., as well as from individual donors.
