The Libs just take Toronto's vote for granted and do nothing to further Toronto's agenda.
This is an excerpt from a today's newspaper. The word "further" is used as a verb here. I'd like to know if this is standard English and if it can be used freely.

Yes, it is a standard verb, and yes, it is commonly used in a particular context of advancing the progress of something, either through encouragement or through practical means.
