Matsuda has degrees from UCLA, USC, CSUF and Chapman University. He is married to Suzie Dong-Matsuda and they have a son named Ethan. They reside in Yorba Linda.
Matsuda was the Democratic Party’s nominee for the 68th Assembly District back in 1998, losing to Ken Maddox by about 7% of the vote, according to Smart Voter. Maddox eventually termed out of the State Assembly, got divorced, moved to Dana Point, got elected to and then recalled from the Capistrano Unified School District and ended up quitting the GOP after he remarried and morphed into Ken Maddox-Lopez.
Matsuda was re-elected to a four-year term on the North Orange County Community College District in 2012.
