Connolly raises $68,000 in December, denies run for Boston mayor

Councilor at large John R. Connolly raised almost $68,000 in December, more than double the haul of any other city official, including Mayor Thomas M. Menino.

Connolly’s fund-raising tear is continuing this month, and his campaign has already deposited $40,000 more in his account, he said. The councilor’s aggres­sive pace picked up as most candidates raced to bolster their campaign accounts heading into an election year. Individual donors may give up to $500 per year, which makes Dec. 31 an impor­tant fund-raising deadline.
