Bill Renick (born 1954) is a former mayor of Ashland, Mississippi, and campaigned for Governor of Mississippi as a Democrat before withdrawing on April 23, 2007.[1] At the age of 18, he became one of the youngest elected officials in the history of Mississippi when he was elected an alderman for the city of Ashland. At the age of 27, Renick became one of Mississippi's youngest mayors. He was later elected a Benton County Supervisor, where he helped to start the Benton County Medical Center.

During the late 1980s, Renick served as a member of the Mississippi State Senate representing Marshall, Benton and Tippah Counties in north Mississippi. When his Senate colleague, Eddie Briggs (R) was elected Lt. Governor of Mississippi, Renick became his chief of staff. In 2002, another former State Senate colleague, Governor Ronnie Musgrove (D), hired Renick as Chief of Staff to the Governor.
